Deadline reports that John Goodman will be joining the cast of Kong: Skull Island. Goodman will play Randa, “a government official who leads an expedition.” The cast already includes Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, Brie Larson, and John C. Reilly.
New details about the plot have also been revealed. Granted, these details are from an earlier draft of the script before director Jordan Vogt-Roberts signed on. Vogt-Roberts is apparently working on a new script with his screenwriters. Regardless, the synopsis could still give us a good idea of what we’re in store for.
“The story is about a man (Hiddleston) who travels to the mythical island and home of the king of the apes. A team of explorers ventures inside what they find to be a treacherous island.”
Sadly, it says nothing about Godzilla, but Vogt-Roberts could always change that.
