Tom Hiddleston's King Kong reboot Skull Island pushed back to 2017

Skull Island, the new reboot of iconic blockbuster King Kong, which is set to star Tom Hiddleston, has seen its release date pushed back to 2017. 

The new blockbuster was announced a Comic-Con earlier this year, with Hiddleston's casting confirmed shortly afterwards. The film will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who was recently behind the camera on indie hit The Kings Of Summer. 

Skull Island was due to be released into cinemas in November of 2016, but producers Universal have taken the decision to move its release date back to March of 2017. 

The last time King Kong was up on cinema screens was in 2005, when Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson produced a remake of the original 1933 classic, starring Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrian Brody. 

In the same presentation, Tull also confirmed that Godzilla, which was a big hit at the box office earlier this year, would be getting a sequel, again directed by Gareth Edwards. It also confirmed that Gdozilla's old enemies Rodan, Mothra and Ghidora are set to face off with the lizard king in the sequel.
