Production entity Spirit Pictures is interested in adapting the book Kong: King of Skull Island, a prequel to the film.
Penned by Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland, book focuses on the backstory of Skull Island and how the giant gorilla became king there. It introduces other giant gorillas and dinosaurs only hinted at in the previous films.
