Fresh off his role as Doctor Doom in Fox's "Fantastic Four" reboot, Toby Kebbell is in talks to join Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Corey Hawkins in "Kong: Skull Island."
Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (“The Kings of Summer”), the Legendary Pictures action-adventure centers on a team of explorers who venture onto the mysterious, primordial island that’s home to an assortment of creatures, including the king of the apes.
Words of Kebbell's involvement, which arrives courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter, follows news that "Jurassic World" co-writer Derek Connolly has been drafted for a last-minute polish to the origin story.
Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly are said to be circling roles in the film, which starts production in October in Hawaii.
"Kong: Skull Island" opens March 10, 2017.
