Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with some great news. When I was out in New Zealand earlier this year Peter showed me his plans for the KONG sequels, SON OF KONG and the third, at that time Untitled, Kong film. I was unfortunately sworn to secrecy on everything I was shown as Universal wanted to make a big deal about the announcement of their franchise.
Still, I tried to drop some hints in my last KONG report. If you notice I called it "SON OF Quint's KONG reports!" If you go back and read it there are small, small hints at these next movies.
I've seen these genetically enhanced creatures that KONG will have to face. At Weta they had a whole shelf of them. On the surface, Kong's Son fighting these Nazi created creatures might seem a little silly, but I assure you it's no more silly than Kong fighting dinosaurs and big snakes. It's actually quite a brilliant move by Jackson because he's making these creatures just as sympathetic as Kong himself. They were tortured by the Nazis, twisted into these horrific sights. The giant bat monster is the exception. That fucker is just plain evil. However, wait until you see giant wolf creature. It's scary, but even in the maquette I saw, the eyes showed so much soul...
Anyway, Peter and the crew made the official announcement today via Kong Is King. Click below and you'll get the newest video diary with a sneak look at some pre-production images and even find out who is returning from the cast! Enjoy!
