One of the greatest actors of our time, Michael Keaton, is said to be finalising a deal to join the cast of Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island, says Deadline.
Keaton – best known to us from Batman and Beatlejuice, as well as the recent critically acclaimed Birdman (pictured), will join the previously announced Tom Hiddleston (Only Lovers Left Alive, Avengers, Thor) and JK Simmons (Whiplash).
Kong: Skull Island promises to fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the iconic ape as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island.
Jordan Vogt-Roberts directs from a script written by John Gatins and Max Borenstein.
Universal Pictures will distribute the King Kong-inspired film in 3D and IMAX 3D on March 10, 2017.
