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.
The Metal Gear Solid movie currently has no announced release date. The unnamed monster movie directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts is still searching for a screenwriter.
