JURASSIC WORLD Co-Writer To Co-Write KONG: SKULL ISLAND

Chris Pratt: “Probably not a good idea.”

So Jurassic World is now one of the biggest movies ever made, which is going to make it really hard to convince people that it is fairly awful. It also means all the people involved with making it are going to get opportunities based on box office rather than actual skills.

THR reports that Derek Connelly, co-writer of Jurassic World, will work on the script for Kong: Skull Island. The script is mostly already written. Connelly’s coming in to give it one last pass before cameras start rolling in October.

Jurassic World had many problems, but most of them stemmed from the truly lackluster screenplay, so the idea that this guy’s going to help out on Skull Island really doesn’t bode well. The damage he can do might be minimal since the script is already pretty much a done deal, but who knows. So far the script has been worked on by Godzilla’s Max Bernstein, Flight’s John Gatins, and Nightcrawler’s Dan Gilroy.

Kong: Skull Island is expected to hit theaters March 10, 2017.
