Tom Hiddleston Cast in King Kong Origin Story

Legendary has cast Tom Hiddleston, known mostly for his role as Loki (Thor’s evil brother), as the “human lead” in the upcoming King Kong film. Legendary has mentioned that though:

” Previous works have touched on the island, staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions. “

Though we don’t much, at the moment, about the plot nor what role Hiddleston will play in the film we can speculate and say Tom will be some sort of explorer or adventurer who ends up at Skull Island. Legendary announced its plans to make a feature film based on the cinematic origins of King Kong during this year’s San Diego Comic Con with an original draft of the script by Max Borenstein. Universal Pictures will distribute the film on November 4, 2016.
