Following his remarkable success with the Oscar-winning drama Birdman, Michael Keaton has now officially joined the cast of the King Kong sequel spin-off Kong: Skull Island.

He will join an already heavyweight cast including Tom Hiddlestone, (Thor, Avengers Assemble) and recent Oscar winner J.K. Simmons, (Whiplash). The film will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and will be written by Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein and Flight scriptwriter John Gatins.

The film will apparently be set in the 70s, initially taking place in Detroit, but even with a change of timeline the movie will keep faithful to the origins of Skull Island as the official synopsis explains:

Kong: Skull Island will fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island.  Legendary’s story honors the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but places it in an entirely new, distinct timeline. 

Kong: Skull Island is slated for release in 2016.
