Neil Marshall has signed on to helm Skull Island: Blood of the King.
According to The Tracking Board, Marshall – who worked on The Descent and Dog Soldiers – will also write the script for the project, alongside Simon Utley.
Blood of the King will be based on the 2004 graphic novel Kong: King of Skull Island, which is set 25 years after Kong’s famous exploits in New York. The story sees Carl Denham’s son make a discovery that leads him to return to Skull Island.
Information such as casting or release date is yet known, however given the positive reception to the novel, this may well be a sequel worth waiting for.
