The monster mash-up will feature updated looks.
Godzilla VS King Kong will be a remake of the classic Japanese monster fighting film, pitting two of the most legendary beasts against one another. Both Millie Boby Brown and Brian Tyree Henry have signed on to star in the film, with the former already starring in the upcoming Godzilla sequel King of the Monsters.
Last month, Godzilla VS King Kong director Adam Wingard uploaded a picture to his private Instagram account that hinted at a new look for the king of apes. The picture shows a production caution sign, warning those nearby that filming is taking place. "Danger. Area off limits. Great ape sighted," reads the caution sign, with a picture of King Kong posted beside the message. Wingard dropped into his own comments to write, "FYI this is not Kong's new design. He looks way cooler than this in the movie." Check out the photo here.
He’s got plenty of freedom to sort of play around with how he wants," Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts told Collider in regards to Wingard. "I always joke that my Kong was kind of like a character in a Shane Black movie in the sense that he just gets beat the fuck up by the end of the movie. He’s just battered and scarred, and so he’s got that kind of reluctant protagonist vibe to him. I think Adam’s willing to take that anime thing and do what he needs to do as he squares off with Godzilla.”
