Jordan Vogt-Roberts To Direct Tom Hiddleston In 'Skull Island'

16 September 2014 9:50 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

At Comic-Con this summer, Legendary Pictures revealed their next mega-project blockbuster. And no, it isn't a movie based on the Marvel Comic book character Namor like some had weirdly suggested. Instead, the project will revisit the greatest cinematic ape of all time: King Kong. And now the movie, tentatively titled "Skull Island," has a director and star. "The Kings Of Summer" helmer Jordan Vogt-Roberts and "Thor" trickster Tom Hiddleston will respectively direct and star in the upcoming movie. The big news here is the announcement of Vogt-Roberts, who like "Safety Not Guaranteed" helmer Colin Trevorrow ("Jurassic World") and Gareth Edwards ("Monsters") makes the leap from indie to tentpole projects. But as we usually say, folks shouldn't be concerned. These kinds of movies have ace special effects teams and support in place so that these guys will hit the ground running. And it will be a good testing ground before »

Vogt-Roberts and Tom Hiddleston Board 'Skull Island' for Legendary

16 September 2014 9:42 AM, PDT | Rope of Silicon | See recent Rope Of Silicon news »

In recent memory we had Marc Webb go from (500) Days of Summer to The Amazing Spider-Man franchise, Colin Trevorrow went from Safety Not Guaranteed and now Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) is heading to Skull Island for Legendary and Universal with Tom Hiddleston in talks to star. It seems studios simply love those indie directors for their big tentpole features. Following the announcement during this year's Comic Con, Joe Cornish (Attack the Block) was said to be wanted for the King Kong prequel which is said to be based on the cinematic origins of King Kong with an original draft of the script by Max Borenstein (Godzilla). Now Vogt-Roberts is confirmed for the helmer's chair and will bring us Skull Island a film said to be staying on and exploring the mysterious and dangerous place with Universal distributing the film on November 4, 2016. https://twitter.com/VogtRoberts/status/511913785389350912 »

Judy Greer Talks Ant-man Excitement, Jurassic World And Planet Of The Apes 3

5 September 2014 3:10 PM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

  There's been a lot of speculation in regards to who Judy Greer will be playing in Ant-Man, with Janet Van Dyne and Scott Lang's ex-wife the two most popular suggestions so far. In a recent interview, the actress remained coy when quizzed about her role in the Marvel Studios movie, saying only: "No, I have not started shooting yet. But even if I did I couldn’t tell you that." As for whether Greer is excited to appear in Ant-Man, she responded, "F*ck yes! Dude, yeah! Like that’s huge." So, how does it feel to be part of the Marvel family? "Ask me in November." Thankfully, she was a little more forthcoming about her role in Jurassic World, the upcoming movie from director Colin Trevorrow starring Guardians of the Galaxy's Chris Pratt. and while she wouldn't reveal whether her character meets up with any dinosaurs, Greer »

Jurassic World Director Colin Trevorrow Pays Tribute to Lord Richard Attenborough

26 August 2014 11:38 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Following the sad passing of Lord Richard Attenborough, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow has revealed a new behind the scenes image which offers up a look at a statue of the character – John Hammond – he played in the first two Jurassic Park movies which were helmed by Steven Spielberg.

The legendary actor and director’s health had been failing for a number of years, so a cameo appearance in Jurassic World was always out of the question. It should be very interesting to see how Hammond is referenced in Jurassic World now, especially as the park has reopened and is actually a success now by all accounts.

Based on what we’ve heard so far about Jurassic World, it’s shaping up to be one of 2015′s best movies, and Colin Trevorrow is a promising young filmmaker who looks set to follow up some great lower budget Indies with a »

This Is How Jurassic World Is Paying Tribute To John Hammond

26 August 2014 9:58 AM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

In Memoriam. pic.twitter.com/5jL7Sh9Hpr. Colin Trevorrow (@colintrevorrow) August 25, 2014 This weekend we lost the legendary Lord Richard Attenborough, and even today his loss is still felt. The tremendous actor/director of such films as The Great Escape, The Sand Pebbles, Brighton Rock, Gandhi and Chaplin left a full life and a grand legacy behind, which has mostly been highlighted by his work in Steven Spielberg's 1993 masterpiece Jurassic Park. Now while Attenborough did have an enormous legacy before his role as the eccentric John Hammond, it is that role that most modern audiences identify him with. A role that is being paid tribute by friends, colleagues, and even those who did not get to work with him, but continue his legacy tangentially. Case in point is Colin Trevorrow's tweet from last night, showcasing what can be assumed to be a memorial to John Hammond in the »

Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Safety Not Guaranteed), Jurassic World is the fourth installment of the popular film franchise that originated with Steven Spielberg's 1993 film sci-fi actioner Jurassic Park based on the novel by Michael Crichton. Steven Spielberg returns to executive produce the long-awaited next installment of his groundbreaking Jurassic Park series, Jurassic World. Twenty-two years after the events of Jurassic Park, Isla Nublar now features a fully functioning dinosaur theme park as originally envisioned by John Hammond, owned and operated by the Patel Corporation. After many years, Jurassic World's attendance rates begin to decline and a new attraction created to re-spark customers' interest gravely backfires, drawing members of the park's staff -- including Owen (Chris »

Trevorrow Tweets an Attenborough Tribute of 'Jurassic World' Statue

25 August 2014 3:42 PM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"Welcome to Jurassic Park!" With the death of the great Richard Attenborough this week, the industry has been outspoken in their love for the legendary actor/filmmaker. One of the roles he is remembered for the most is Dr. John Hammond from Jurassic Park, the man who loved dinosaurs so much he had to bring them back to life. Steven Spielberg wrote about how Attenborough "was the perfect ringmaster to bring the dinosaurs back", but now the director of the new Jurassic World, Colin Trevorrow, has chimed in with his own "In Memoriam": a photo of a John Hammond statue, which we can only assume is from the new movie. Trevorrow explains the new park, which is a ferry ride from Costa Rica (via SlashFilm): "It has elements of a biological preserve, a safari, a zoo, and a theme park. There is a luxury resort with hotels, restaurants, »

Director Colin Trevorrow Remembers Richard Attenborough with New Jurassic World Image

25 August 2014 3:12 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The world lost a great filmmaker and actor this past weekend with the passing of Sir Richard Attenborough.  Though his directing credits included films like Gandhi, A Chorus Line, and Chaplin, many probably best remember him as the mild-mannered John Hammond from Jurassic Park.  Though filming on the new Jurassic Park film, Jurassic World, has wrapped, director Colin Trevorrow felt it was fitting to share a new Jurassic World image in remembrance of Attenborough, as it shows a statue memorializing his John Hammond character.  Though Hammond himself likely doesn’t appear in Jurassic World, the character no doubt looms large thanks to Attenborough’s unforgettable performance. Hit the jump to take a look at the Jurassic World image.  The film opens in theaters on June 12, 2015.

Lord Richard Attenborough Gets Immortalized in Jurassic World

25 August 2014 2:21 PM, PDT | Cinelinx | See recent Cinelinx news »

Over the weekend, the sad news came in that Lord Richard Attenborough has passed away shortly before his 91st birthday.  Attenborough is well known for many projects, but many later generations knew well from his portrayal of John Hammond in Jurassic Park.  Jurassic World has finished filming and today, the film's director took to twitter to show off a new image that shows how Attenborough's character will be remembered in the film...

Earlier today Colin Trevorrow posted this image on Twitter, only saying "In Memoriam":

There's no indication of where this image came from, but considering the news of Attenborough's death was so sudden, it's likely that this image is from the set of the new film, Jurassic World.  We know in the new film that Jurassic World is a fully functioning theme park, fulfilling the dream Hammond had back in the first film.  So it would make sense »
