Per Deadline, the venerable J.K. Simmons has signed on to Legendary’s Kong: Skull Island! Simmons will be joining star Tom Hiddleston and director Jordan Vogt-Roberts as they continue preproduction on the recently delayed (and re-titled) film. Now releasing March 10, 2017, the film will be the first in a new Kong-tinuity.
