Jason Mitchell to head to Kong: Skull Island

Jason Mitchell, who plays Easy-e in this weekend’s big opener in the UK, Straight Outta Compton, is in negotiations to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island.

Mitchell will play ‘an easy-going polit’ in the flick, which also has Samuel L. Jackson, Tom Wilkinson, John C. Reilly and Toby Kebbell up for various parts.

'Kong: Skull Island' Reunites 'Straight Outta Compton' Stars

25 August 2015 7:12 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

Just a few weeks after Corey Antonio Hawkins joined Legendary Pictures' Kong: Skull Island, Variety reports the actor's Straight Outta Compton co-star Jason Mitchell is in talks to join the cast. If the actor does sign on, he will join a cast that also includes Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson. We reported earlier this month that Samuel L. Jackson and Tom Wilkinson are being eyed to replace Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons in Kong: Skull Island.

The story centers on a group of explorers who go on an expedition to Skull Island, the home of King Kong. The story is said to be in the spirit of Legendary's recent blockbuster Godzilla, keeping the same established mythology of the creature intact while placing the story in a new and distinct timeline. If he signs on, Jason Mitchell will portray a pilot, but no details were given for the other characters quite yet. »

According to Deadline, Samuel L. Jackson (Avengers: Age Of Ultron), John C. Reilly (Guardians of the Galaxy) and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins) are all in early talks to star in Legendary Pictures' Kong: Skull Island.

'Kong: Skull Island' Wants Russell Crowe and Brie Larson

23 July 2015 12:49 PM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

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.

Brie Larson is in talks to join Tom Hiddleston in Legendary’s King Kong origin tale “Kong: Skull Island.”
