Loki himself, “Thor” star Tom Hiddleston, has joined the cast of the King Kong origin movie “Skull Island” for Legendary Pictures.
Hiddleston will reportedly play the lead role in the project, though no further details about his character are available at this point.
At the same time, “The Kings of Summer” director Jordan Vogt-Roberts is confirmed to be directing the film which will deal with the many monsters occupying the mysterious, remote and harsh Skull Island.
Vogt-Roberts, who is also slated to direct the upcoming film based on the “Metal Gear Solid” franchise, confirmed his recruitment via Twitter.
The project, which was announced at this year’s Comic Con, is currently targeting a late 2016 release.
