Tom Hiddleston previews ‘Kong Skull Island’ saying he’s ‘like you’ve never seen him before’

While promoting his new Hank Williams biopic and the upcoming series The Night Manager, British star previewed his upcoming King Kong film, Kong: Skull Island. Joining director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Hiddleston sounds thrilled to playing the “good guy.”

Tom Hiddleston in Kong Skull ISlandSpeaking with Daily Beast, the I Saw the Light actor previewed the new film, saying “It’s cool, it’s gonna be new this time,” says Hiddleston.

Kong was a change, to play a heroic protagonist—having never really played that role before—in a massive movie. And Jordan’s vision for it is really unique: completely different time period, different story, and Kong like you’ve never seen him before. There is no young movie actress, there is no film director. It’s a reimagining of it.”

“There’s a little extra social commentary, but it feels fresh,” he adds. “The myth behind it is more about the necessity of man’s humility in the face of nature. We keep thinking we can build a better world than nature. I’m not sure that we can.”

Skull Island is the the second film in the Godzilla-King Kong shared universe and will be followed by the crossover Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020. The film is rumored to be set in the 1970s, possibly Detroit, Michigan.

Also starring is Oscar-winner Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, John Goodman, John C. Reilly,Corey Hawkins, Shea Whigham, Thomas Mann, Jason Mitchell and Toby Kebbell as a motion capture version of King Kong.

Hiddleston just wrapped filming on Kong: Skull Island, which hits theaters March 10, 2017.
