MarVista Entertainment and IM Global Television have announced that they are teaming up to develop, co-produce, and co-finance the television series “King Kong Skull Island” which they make clear is completely unrelated to the recent “Kong: Skull Island”.
The project is said to be a serialized, contemporary continuation of the classic, exclusively endorsed by Kong’s creator, and will boast a female-led and multi-cultural ensemble that delves fully into the wonders and horrors of Skull Island and its origins.
Jonathan Penner and Stacy Title are attached as writers/executive producers while Dannie Festa will executive produce. Joe DeVito’s 2004 art book “Kong: King Of Skull Island”, which functioned as prequel/sequel to the original 1930s movie, will serve as the basis for the in-development television series.
The project has yet to be taken out to networks and streaming services. The recent “Kong: Skull Island” grossed more than $552 million worldwide.
