Wow, that's a quick turnaround from movie to TV show! I also appreciate that they are planning such a progressive cast.

quote:

Kong: Skull Island, the second entry in Warner Bros.’ “MonsterVerse,” which also includes 2014’s Godzilla, as well as the upcoming film Godzilla: King of Monsters (2019), and the inevitable Godzilla vs. Kong (2020), hit theaters just over a month ago.

Now, as reported by Deadline, there will be a not-totally-related King Kong TV show called King Kong Skull Island. It will reportedly feature “a female-led, multicultural ensemble that delves into the wonders and horrors of Skull Island and its origins.”

quote:

The live-action series will be written by The Bye Bye Man’s Jonathan Penner and Stacy Title, adapted from the novelization of Merian C. Cooper’s original 1932 film King Kong and DeVito Artworks’ Skull Island comics. IM Global is co-producing the series (it does not yet have a network attached), and president Mark Stern explained the choice to Deadline saying “There’s clearly a deep and abiding interest in this timeless story.” A timeless story about a really big animal that exists in the same universe as a different really big animal. Coming to a small screen near you.

The first two films in the “MonsterVerse” have together raked in over $1 billion for Warner Bros. at the box office, so it’s clear why TV producers would want in. And it is, I suppose, worth noting that both those films have Rotten Tomatoes scores about three times those of the studio’s recent superhero films, Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice (28 percent) and the Academy Award-winning Suicide Squad (25 percent).

I should go see it with him.

I never saw the movie nor the trailers, what's it about? How did they manage to make it an hour and a half and now a whole TV series? It's just a big ape, shoot bullets at it and take all the oil it's guarding or whatever.

No poo poo. How can you not know that king Kong is made of bullets so shooting him only makes him bigger

Skull Island teh TV series will never be as good as Gilligans Island the TV series until the Harlem Globetrotters show up for an episode.

This gonna be like every hour-long action-drama poo poo fest out now. You won't see Kong until the third season, and it'll mostly be about a bunch of people scowling and being overly serious about their predicament.

Wouldn't it be more boring with giant humans?

Oh look we found a giant snake, but it's normal tiny snake size from our giant perspective Whoopdeedoo.

It'd save on the effects budget, though.

I mean normal sized humans find a tribe of giant humans or the like, lots of possible ways go with that.

I just really don't get the appeal of giant frogs this week, giant koalas the next etc. Maybe this show just isn't for me.
