Legendary Pictures has plans for new Godzilla vs King Kong movie


Let’s get ready to rumble! BIG news has come out this week that is sure to have monster movie buffs frothing at the mouth. Word has it that Legendary Pictures is moving its King Kong reboot from Universal to Warner Brothers. The purpose of this shift is so that Legendary can put forth in motion the plans for a new Godzilla vs King Kong movie. Legendary released Godzilla under Warner Brothers, so naturally bringing King Kong over would just make things a lot easier for the ultimate Kaiju showdown in the same way Marvel works with its properties.

According to the report, the monster mashup would be released after the Godzilla sequel, which is reportedly slated for a 2018 release. The King Kong reboot, Kong: Skull Island, reportedly would be released in 2017. Things are projected to move really fast behind the scenes to make this happen. Given the success of the first Godzilla film and how big comic book movie crossover films are right now, chances are very good that this film will come to fruition.

Hard to believe that it has been almost 60 years since the release of the original Toho classic. The film today is still considered one of the highest grossing Godzilla films in the entire Toho franchise. The studio tried throughout the years to do a sequel to the film, but they could never secure the rights to King Kong.
