Legendary Pictures announced in July 2014 at the San Diego Comic-Con a King Kong origin story—initially titled Skull Island—and listed a release date of November 4, 2016, with Universal Pictures distributing. Legendary offered Joe Cornish the job of directing the film, while previous King Kong helmer Peter Jackson suggested Guillermo del Toro. In September 2014, the studio announced that Jordan Vogt-Roberts would direct the film.
On December 12, 2014, the studio announced they had re-titled the film Kong: Skull Island. On September 10, 2015, it was announced that Universal would let Legendary Pictures move Kong: Skull Island to Warner Bros., so they could do a King Kong and Godzilla crossover film, since Legendary still had the rights to do the two Godzilla sequels with Warner Brothers. Later, it was announced that the film’s script had references to Monarch, the secret government entity in Godzilla (2014).
The script saw a number of screenwriters attached before filming. Seeking the continuity between the King Kong and Godzilla worlds, Max Borenstein (writer of 2014’s Godzilla) wrote the first draft while John Gatins was hired to write the second draft. In August 2015, it was revealed that Dan Gilroy also collaborated on the script with Borenstein and Gatins. On August 18, 2015, it was confirmed that Derek Connolly was also doing script rewrites.
In April 2016, artist Joe DeVito sued producers of the film for using elements of his Skull Island universe, which he claimed that he created and the producers used without his permission.
Director Vogt-Roberts stated that he wanted Kong to look simple and iconic enough that a third grader could draw him and it would still be recognizable. Vogt-Roberts also wanted Kong to feel like a “lonely God, he was a morose figure, lumbering around this island” and took the design back to the 1933 incarnation where Kong was presented as a “bipedal creature that walks in an upright position.” Vogt-Roberts additionally stated, “If anything, our Kong is meant to be a throwback to the ’33 version. [Kong] was a movie monster, so we worked really hard to take some of the elements of the ’33 version, some of those exaggerated features, some of those cartoonish and iconic qualities, and then make them their own…We created something that to some degree served as a throwback to the inspiration for what started all of this, but then also [had] it be a fully unique and different creature that — I would like to think — is fully contained and identifiable as the 2017 version of King Kong. I think there are very modern elements to him, yet hopefully he feels very timeless at the same time.”
Hayao Miyazaki‘s Princess Mononoke helped influence the design and approach of the monsters, Vogt-Roberts stated, “Miyazaki[‘s] Princess Mononoke was actually a big reference in the way that the spirit creatures sort of have their own domains and fit within that. So a big thing [was] trying to design creatures that felt realistic and could exist in an ecosystem that feels sort of wild and out there, and then also design things that simultaneously felt beautiful and horrifying at the same time.”
At the same time of the announcement of Vogt-Roberts as director, the studio also announced that Tom Hiddleston would play the lead role. On December 15, 2014, it was announced that J. K. Simmons had been cast in the film. In an interview with MTV, Simmons revealed that the film would be set in Detroit in 1971, and that they would shoot it in Detroit during baseball season.
In January 2015, it was announced that Michael Keaton had joined the cast. On July 1, 2015, Keaton and Simmons exited the film due to their scheduling conflicts. Legendary did not want to delay more in start of production so the studio began the search of two actors to replace. On July 23, 2015, Brie Larson was cast in the film to play the female lead. On August 5, 2015, it was announced that Corey Hawkins was cast in the film to play a supporting role.  On August 6, 2015, Deadline.com reported that the studio was in early talks with Samuel L. Jackson to replace the role which Simmons vacated, while John C. Reilly was being eyed for Keaton’s role but not offered yet. Tom Wilkinson was also offered a role in the film.
On August 20, 2015, Toby Kebbell joined the cast of the film, while Jackson and Reilly were confirmed for roles. On August 25, 2015, Jason Mitchell joined the cast to play a pilot in the film. On September 25, 2015, John Goodman was cast in the film to play Randa, a government official and leader of an expedition and Thomas Mann was also cast. On October 1, 2015, John Ortiz and Shea Whigham were added to the cast for unspecified roles. On October 13, 2015, Eugene Cordero joined the film for an unspecified role.On November 2, 2015, it was announced Will Brittain had joined the cast of the film, portraying the role of a pilot, and grabbing one of the last key leads in the film. In May 2016, Toby Kebbell revealed that Terry Notary would portray Kong through motion capture and that Kebbell provided some guidance for Kong’s motion capture sequences.
Principal photography on the film began on October 19, 2015, and concluded on March 18, 2016. Filming took place in the northern portion of Vietnam including Tràng An, Vân Long and Tam Cốc (Ninh Bình Province), Hạ Long Bay (Quảng Ninh Province) and at the entrance of Tú Làn Caves System, (Tân Hoá, Trung Hoá Village, Minh Hoá District Quảng Bình Province), the island of Oahu in Hawaii, and Australia’s Gold Coast. Locations included Honolulu’s Chinatown and at the Kualoa Ranch and Waikane Valley (Ohulehule Forest Conservancy) on Oahu. In mid-January 2016, filming started in Gold Coast, Queensland, Australia.
On December 12, 2014, the release date moved from November 4, 2016, to March 10, 2017. It is planned to be released in 3D and IMAX 3D; as well as in Dolby Vision High Dynamic Range and Dolby Atmos sound in Dolby Cinemas.
In September 2015, Legendary moved Kong: Skull Island from Universal to Warner Bros., which sparked media speculation that Godzilla and King Kong will appear in a film together. In October 2015, Legendary confirmed that they would unite Godzilla and King Kong in Godzilla vs. Kong, set for a May 29, 2020, release date. Legendary plans to create a shared cinematic franchise “centered around Monarch” and that “brings together Godzilla and Legendary’s King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant super-species, both classic and new”. While Legendary will maintain its home at Universal Pictures, it will continue to collaborate with Warner Bros. for the franchise.
