Joe Cornish Offered Legendary’s “Skull Island”

“Attack the Block” director Joe Cornish has reportedly been offered the upcoming King Kong reboot “Skull Island” for Legendary Pictures.

The origin story will deal with the giant gorilla and his life on an island of prehistoric monsters before he was taken into captivity.

“Godzilla” scribe Max Borenstein will be writing the script for the film which was announced this past weekend at Comic Con. The film is targeting a November 2016 release.

Cornish’s next project is Universal’s “Section 6” starring Jack O’Connell as a young British WWI veteran tasked with a secret mission to recover coded assassination orders in Russia in 1919.
