  • Warner Bros. is up to something big.

Warner Bros. to make ‘Kong: Skull Island’ in a plan for monster movie universe.

Negotiations are currently underway between Legendary Entertainment, Universal and Warner Bros. Sources reveal to THR that the plan is to move Legendary’s ‘Kong: Skull Island’ from Universal to Warner Bros. 

The final plan is to combine the classic screen monsters King Kong and Godzilla into one cinematic universe. Godzilla was made by Legendary with Warner Bros. The movie had been a hit and grossed around $200 million. Now a sequel is in the development phase with an eye for a 2018 release.

On the other hand Legendary is making Skull Island, a King Kong movie. The project is just weeks away from shooting for stars Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson. It had  become clear that all roads would eventually lead to a crossover with a series of movies on these species.

So talks were initiated to move Skull Island. When coming to the details Universal has no financial stake in the movie as it was only to distribute. So the negotiations could turn out to be favorable.

The movie is good for Warner Bros. as it will feed the studio’s wish for event movies. Plus this will also provide the studio with a new universe. One which will be different from the one based on DC characters. This Kong-Godzilla paring will not be cinema’s first. These two monsters have already faced off in 1962’s King Kong vs. Godzilla.
