‘Kong: Skull Island’ Director Interested In John C. Reilly Spin-Off

'Kong: Skull Island' director Jordan Vogt-Roberts would be interested in exploring the backstory of John C. Reilly's character in a spin-off.

Please be aware that this article contains minor spoilers for Kong: Skull Island

Kong: Skull Island director Jordan Vogt-Roberts know that many people are interested in all of the monsters like Godzilla, King Kong, and so on. But, he might be more interested in another character getting his own spin-off movie. This character is named Marlow and was played by John C. Reilly in the film.

Marlow, having landed on Skull Island thirty years prior to the events of the film, spends his time there living with the native people of the island and learning about the nature of King Kong and the creatures lurking beneath the surface of the island, called Skull Crawlers.

Speaking with Cinema Blend, Vogt-Roberts joked that he’d much rather see a movie where the lost thirty years of Marlow’s life are explored.

I mean, all people are fucking excited about the idea for Kong and Godzilla and Rodan and all those creatures clashing. I don’t exactly know where the world’s plans are. In fact, I keep joking that personally I’m more interested in doing a $30 million version of young John C. Reilly on the island. Just some weird, the odd-ball monster comedy with him and Gunpei. So I don’t really know where they’d take it from here.

What do you think? If you’ve seen the movie, would a film starring Reilly’s character be something you’d watch? Let us know in the comments below!
