Kong Director Has a Monster Movie to Tackle Ahead of Metal Gear Solid

Kong from Skull Island

Jordan Vogt-Roberts made a monster movie based on one of the biggest monsters in history when he directed Kong: Skull Island. The director will next turn his eyes on a new monster movie -- this one based on an original idea.

Deadline reports that the movie has no title yet and there isn't a writer lined up to pen the script. What is known is that Vogt-Roberts will direct and Michael B. Jordan's Outlier Society and New Regency will produce the film.

After breaking out with Kings of Summer, a huge coming-of-age festival hit, he got the chance to make Kong: Skull Island, a movie very different from his breakthrough film. When Kong: Skull Island made $565 million worldwide, it turned Jordan Vogt-Roberts into a hot property in Hollywood.

The original monster movie might end up putting a delay on his upcoming video game movie Metal Gear Solid. Jordan Vogt-Roberts will direct the film, based on a script by Derek Connolly (Jurrasic World). It was also announced this month that Oscar Issac was interested in the role of Solid Snake in Metal Gear Solid.
