At Comic-Con this year, one of the biggest surprise announcements came at the end of the Legendary panel when a mysterious teaser trailer revealed the upcoming 'King Kong' prequel, 'Skull Island'. The teaser did what it set out to do, teasing the audience with the announcement of a new movie they previously knew nothing about. Well, today we know a little bit more about 'Skull Island,' specifically who could be directing it.
Let's not put 'Star Trek 3' into warp speed just yet.
After promising reports that 'Attack the Block' director (and frequent Edgar Wright collaborator) Joe Cornish would be directing the follow up to 'Star Trek Into Darkness' comes word that Cornish is "no longer involved" with the upcoming sequel.
With J.J. Abrams hard at work on 'Star Wars: Episode VII' to meet a December 2015 release deadline, someone has to step up and direct 'Star Trek 3.' Plenty of names have been tossed about as potential replacements, and now we can add a new one to the running: 'Attack the Block' director Joe Cornish, which might be the best possible choice we've heard so far.
In news that will surely rock the very foundation of Tinseltown, a writer/director/producer type is going to make a big screen movie based off of a property from something called a "graphic novel."
Though it was one of last year's most hyped movies, 'Attack the Block' wasn't much of a performer stateside, so it was hard to know how writer-director Joe Cornish would land. He was supposedly considered for 'Die Hard 5,' but now he has his next gig: Adapting Neal Stephenson's 'Snow Crash' for Paramount.
