Kong: Skull Island director promises ‘the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen’
Beloved mega-ape King Kong has a cinematic history stretching back 83 years. But director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who’s helming next year’s reboot Kong: Skull Island, promises bigger things ahead for the character. In an exclusive image from the film shared with EW, stars Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson find themselves in a boneyard, standing amidst the ruins of a massive creature.
“From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore,” says Vogt-Roberts. “Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.”

Brie Larson poses with the actresses playing the younger versions of her character in the upcoming movie The Glass Castle.
The 26-year-old Oscar-winning actress posted the photo on Twitter along with another photo from set which featured Naomi Watts, Woody Harrelson, and a bunch of child actors.
“One big #glasscastlemovie family,” Brie captioned that photo. Naomi posted the same picture on Instagram and captioned it, “Smashing day with the #glasscastlemovie #family ?.”
The Glass Castle, based on Jeannette Walls‘ memoir, is about a young girl who “comes of age in a dysfunctional family of nonconformist nomads with a mother who’s an eccentric artist and an alcoholic father who would stir the children’s imagination with hope as a distraction to their poverty.”

Ben Wheatley’s last film, High Rise, which you can find me enjoying the hell out of here, was a huge step up for the director, and his next will be another leap again.
Free Fire, which Empire posted the first image from today, is his first film set in the US and sees him assemble an impressive cast of Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer, Sam Riley and Enzo Cilenti.
What’s more, it’s being executive produced by Martin Scorsese, who is the man you want to have on board when making a 70s crime drama and was one of Wheatley’s directorial inspirations for the movie.
Free Fire is set in Boston in 1978, centring on the fallout from a gun-running deal gone wrong brokered by Larson’s character in a deserted warehouse. On one side is two Irishmen (Murphy and Smiley), on the other a pair of arms traffickers (Hammer and Shalto Copley). Continue reading
EXCLUSIVE: The Beautiful Lie star Sarah Snook is in negotiations to appear in Lionsgate’s The Glass Castle, the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed adaptation of the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls.
Like the book, the film will chart Wall’s dysfunctional, impoverished upbringing in the American Southwest and its impact on her later writing career; the deal isn’t done yet, but Snook would play Walls’ sister opposite Brie Larson as Walls, with Naomi Watt and Woody Harrelson as their parents. Cretton is writing the script with Andrew Lanham and Marti Noxon; Erik Feig and Gil Netter are producing. The Glass Castle is another potential hit for Lionsgate that’s based on successful IP – the book spent 261 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list and went on to sell nearly 3 million copies.
Snook recently starred in the Old Vic production of The Master Builder alongside Ralph Feinnes, and held the lead role in ABC’s 6-part miniseries The Beautiful Lie. Other credits include Steve Jobs, The Dressmaker opposite Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth, Holding The Man with Guy Pierce and Geoffrey Rush, the ABC pilot Clementine, and the Robert Heinlein adaptation Predestination with Ethan Hawke and Noah Taylor. She’s repped by UTA, Jenny Rawlings, and Shanahan Management.
