The planned reboot of the King Kong franchise, Skull Island, has gotten a minor title change and new release date. Originally scheduled for November 4th, 2016, Universal's now titled Kong: Skull Island will hit theaters on March 10, 2017.
The film stars Tom Hiddleston and will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. It is planned to be an origin story of sorts, exploring the island where Kong is found.
Had the film stayed at its original release date it would have opened up opposite of Marvel's Doctor Strange and Fox's Trolls. If someone were to make a movie with Doctor Strange battling King Kong and Trolls… I would so be there.
