'Godzilla' Scribe Tapped to Pen 'Skull Island', Joe Cornish Offered to Direct


Max Borenstein is expected to write the King Kong film and the 'Attack the Block' helmer is courted to take the helming duty.

"Skull Island" creative team is starting to shape up, shortly after the official announcement at the San Diego Comic-Con. Deadline reports that Max Borenstein is booked to write a script for the King Kong film, following his work in "Godzilla" which will spawn a sequel with Gareth Edwards back at the helm.

Legendary is reportedly also courting Joe Cornish to sit behind the lens for "Skull Island". The director is known for his work in "Attack the Block" and is attached to helm Universal's "Section 6", a historical spy movie depicting the origins of MI6, the British intelligence agency founded during World War I.

However, "Section 6" is facing a roadblock. James Bond movie's producers at MGM file a lawsuit, complaining that the film about the M16 director who inspired M has plot and character too similar to Ian Fleming's James Bond saga.
