Michael Keaton and JK Simmons exit 'Kong: Skull Island'
"Kong: Skull Island" just lost two major players.
Michael Keaton and JK Simmons have departed the Legendary tentpole, reportedly due to scheduling conflicts. The studio previously pushed back the start of production from fall to the end of the year, which likely prompted the actors' exit.
Tom Hiddleston remains on board for the "King Kong" franchise entry, which will center on a team of explorers venturing to the "treacherous, primordial" island where the giant ape makes his home. Jordan Vogt-Roberts ("The Kings of Summer") is on board to direct.
