Legendary Pictures is reportedly wooing Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) for their just-announced King Kong origin story. Deadline reports that the studio has offered Cornish the chance to direct Skull Island, which was revealed at Comic-Con.
The film is being billed as an origin story for Kong, looking at the giant simian's life before he was captured. Legendary has had quite the success with giant monsters, having produced Pacific Rim and this year's Godzilla.
