Legendary Pictures announce King Kong prequel 'Skull Island' for 2016

Is 'Kong: Skull Island' A Direct Sequel to Peter Jackson's Movie?

JamesArthurArmstrong JamesArthurArmstrong With production set to begin on Kong: Skull Island in October, a recent casting call was sent out that has in turn started rumours that it may be a direct sequel to Peter Jackson's King Kong. Below is the full casting call...

Kong: Skull Island takes place years after the original film. In 1933, American showman, Carl Denham returned from a mysterious, hidden island with a priceless treasure. A treasure not gold or jewels, but the island’s barabric god, a monstrous anthropoid called “Kong.” The savage giant escaped and wreaked havoc among the man-made canyons of Manhattan, but within hours of the giant apes death his body, and Carl Denham, disappeared. Many years later, the son of Carl Denham makes a shocking discovery that leads him back to the site of his father’s greatest adventure and to the answers that will unlock the century’s greatest mystery and history’s greatest miracle.

Do take this with a pinch of salt. Often casting calls can be incorrect, however, this does tie in with J.K. Simmons' (who recently departed the project) comments that the movie is to be set in the 1970s.
