Kong: Skull Island has just started production in Hawaii and the local Reel Tour Hawaii have posted photos of what they purport to be images from the King Kong set.

A trip back to the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes, the new film will reportedly follow a team of explorers (led by a character played by Tom Hiddleston), who venture deep inside the treacherous, primordial island to find the leader’s brother and a mythical serum, confronting extraordinary creatures along the way. From the look of the below King Kong set photos, the production appears to be on the right track as far as monsters go.

Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson, John Goodman, Jing Tian, Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, John Ortiz, Shea Whigham and Toby Kebbell are also set to star in Kong: Skull Island. A few of them can be seen posing together in a third photo from the tour company. Per Samuel L. Jackson’s Instagram, he’s learning to pilot the helicopter pictured.

Legendary has promised that the story will honor the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but will place Skull Island in an entirely new, distinct timeline.

Bout to learn to drive some new/vintage shit! Fun Fun Fun!!
