Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts also congratulated Adam Wingard on this achievement.
So happy for @AdamWingard! I know he'll shepherd my & Gareth's visions of these monsters in his own dope way. Can't think of a better choice— Jordan Vogt-Roberts (@VogtRoberts) May 31, 2017
Earlier in March, ‘Legendary’ set a writers room to work on the script for the project, with Terry Rossio, the veteran best known for co-writing the Pirates of the Caribbean movies as its head.
