Netflix ropes in ‘Kong: Skull Island’ director for live-action Gundam film

Netflix announced on Monday that director Jordan Vogt-Roberts (“Kong: Skull Island”; 2017) would helm a live-action feature film adaptation of Japan-based studio Sunrise’s “Gandamu Shirīzu” (English: “Gundam Series”) series.


‘Godzilla vs Kong’ is big, dumb, no-nonsense fun


Directed by Adam Wingard, “Godzilla vs. Kong” is the fourth film in Legendary Pictures’ MonsterVerse franchise. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Rebecca Hall (The Prestige, 2006), and Brian Tyree Henry (If Beale Street Could Talk; 2018). Don’t worry about the characters they play, though, because at heart, the film feels like a 90s disaster blockbusters where spectacle trumps everything else.
