Well, it.s starting to look like your favorite giant movie ape is going to have a bunch of new playmates to throw around in a fit of simian rage. Earlier today we learned that Brie Larson has signed on as the female lead in Kong: Skull Island, and now it is being reported that Russell Crowe is being eyed for a key role as well. I could see him getting angry and trying to fist fight King Kong, I.d pay to see that. According to The Wrap, the Oscar-winning Australian actor is set to join the big-budget, special effect-heavy movie from Legendary Pictures. Should he ultimately wind up signing on for the project, he would join Larson and Thor star and general Marvel Cinematic Universe villain, Tom Hiddleston. Skull Island has undergone some substantial upheaval as of late. The production recently lost two high profile actors who figured »
The most recent casting news about Legendary and Universal’s adventure film Kong: Skull Island has been of the bad variety, with Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons dropping out due to a schedule change conflicting with other acting jobs. But there is some hope on the horizon – not just a giant ape – with Brie Larson in talks to play a lead role.If she does make a deal, she’ll star with Tom Hiddleston in the movie, which will find an expedition headed to the mysterious Skull Island, and encounters with the creatures that lurk there. It has a script by Pacific Rim’s Max Borenstein and Real Steel’s John Gatins and has secured The Kings Of Summer’s Jordan Vogt-Roberts to direct. According to Deadline, the studio is seriously trying to win Russell Crowe’s agreement to fill one of the vacated cast spots, but nothing official has happened with that yet. »
Deadline reports that Larson is in talks for the female lead and Crowe would replace either Keaton or Simmons.
Whilst attached, Simmons revealed the movie would be partially set in 1970s Detroit and also feature explorers venturing into Kong's homeland jungle.
Kong: Skull Island is due for release March 10, 2017.
While Kong: Skull Island recently saw Oscar nominee Michael Keaton (Birdman) and Oscar winner J.K. Simmons (Whiplash) drop out of the Universal Pictures and Legendary Entertainment co-production due to scheduling conflicts, Deadline reports a recent Oscar snub may be taking on the lead female role in the film. Brie Larson -- who gave a knockout performance in the 2013 independent drama Short Term 12 and more recently was featured alongside Amy Schumer in Trainwreck -- is in talks to star in the latest update of the King Kong mythos alongside Tom Hiddleston, who joined the cast back in September. According to Deadline, Legendary is still looking for actors to replace Keaton and Simmons, with Russell Crowe among the studio's chief targets. Given the film won't go into production until early 2016 there is still time to settle things on the casting front, but I'll be curious to see who Legendary brings in alongside Larson and Hiddleston. »

Legendary’s King Kong movie Kong: Skull Island may have lost two of its male stars earlier this month in Michael Keaton (Birdman) and J.K. Simmons (Whiplash), but the project has now secured its female lead, with Deadline revealing that Brie Larson (Trainwreck) has signed on to the film.
Larson will join Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers) in the cast of Skull Island, while the site is also reporting that Russell Crowe (Man of Steel) is also wanted as a replacement for either Keaton or Simmons.
Kong: Skull Island is set for release on March 10th 2017, and 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.”

Actress Brie Larson is in talks with Legendary Pictures to play the female lead in their highly-anticipated King Kong movie Kong: Skull Island. If her deal is finalized, she will join Tom Hiddleston, who has been attached to star since September. The news comes just weeks after the action-adventure movie lost two of its stars, Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons, due to scheduling conflicts.
No details were given for Brie Larson's character at this time, or how she fits into the story. Deadline reports that Warner Bros. is also seeking replacements for J.K. Simmons and Michael Keaton, with the studio courting Russell Crowe for one of those roles. It won't be known if the actor will sign on, though, until the latest draft of the screenplay comes in. Legendary first announced the project at Comic-Con 2014 at the end of their Hall H panel.

Some excellent casting news for a project we're keeping a close eye on. Deadline is reporting that talented up-and-coming actress Brie Larson is in talk to take a lead role in Legendary Picture's Kong: Skull Island, the return of King Kong, being directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. The project was announced at Comic-Con a few years ago and is currently in pre-production aiming for release in summer 2017. Just recently there were some casting drop outs, with Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons departing the project. Tom Hiddleston is still set to star, and there's word that Russell Crowe is also possibly looking at joining. I'm just really happy that Brie Larson is landing a big breakout lead in a project like this, bring on the Kong. Brie Larson is a name that we hope more people are coming to recognize. She was fantastic in Short Term 12, but has also appeared in Trainwreck, »

Deadline reports that Brie Larson is in talks for the lead female role in Legendary Pictures' Kong: Skull Island.

Regardless, the site adds that Russell Crowe is being eyed to replace one of them, so it looks set to still have a very impressive ensemble. Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing from a script by John Gatins and Max Borenstein (though Tony Gilroy is apparently working on a new draft right now), and it's set to be released on March 10th, 2017. »

Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island was dealt a pretty serious blow a few weeks back when Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons both exited their roles over scheduling conflicts, but the anticipated tentpole has taken another step forward today with word that Short Term 12 star Brie Larson has landed the female lead.
The actress will join Tom Hiddleston, who was cast some time ago in the lead male role for the King Kong origin tale. Legendary still seeks to cast the two other male leads previously occupied b Keaton and Simmons, and Deadline reports that Russell Crowe is one of the names on the studio’s wish list, but he’s waiting for the next draft of the script before talks begin.
Larson has been an indie darling for years but is tipped to break through to the mainstream thanks both to her supporting part in Trainwreck and her buzzy »

Crowe has not read the script yet, however, as he’s waiting for a new draft. Still, he’s at the top of Legendary’s list of actors to replace last year’s awards darlings Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons, who left “Skull Island” several weeks ago. Jordan Vogt-Roberts (“Kings of Summer”) is set to direct from a script by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. »
