According to The Hollywood Reporter, Toby Kebbell is in talks to join the cast of Kong: Skull Island, the King Kong prequel that’s not really about King Kong. Kebbell recently appeared in Fantastic Four as the villainous Doctor Doom—though we don’t recall if the movie ever actually showed him getting his doctorate in villainy. We don’t know who Kebbell might be playing, but it probably won’t be the same characters that Samuel L. Jackson and John C. Reilly might be playing. (People are very indecisive about Kong: Skull Island.) At the very least, we do know that Skull Island will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts from a script by Derek Connolly, and it’ll star Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, and Corey Hawkins. Also, a giant ape and some dinosaurs will probably show up—but we can’t say for sure—and it’ll be in theaters on March 10, 2017.
