ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – Beloved mega-ape King Kong has a cinematic history stretching back 83 years. But director Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who’s helming next year’s reboot Kong: Skull Island, promises bigger things ahead for the character. In an exclusive image from the film shared with EW, stars Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson find themselves in a boneyard, standing amidst the ruins of a massive creature.

“From the size of the skull, you can tell that things on this island are much bigger than audiences are used to with traditional Kong lore,” says Vogt-Roberts. “Our Kong is by far the biggest Kong that you’ve seen on screen, and that translates to a lot of different things on the island.”

Vogt-Roberts has studied the earlier films closely. When asked for clarification, he starts listing size estimates. “In terms of actual size, our Kong is by far the biggest Kong,” he explains. “Peter Jackson’s Kong was around 25 feet. The ‘33 Kong ranged between 25 feet and 50 feet, I want to say he was 50-plus feet when he was on the Empire State Building. He varied in size dramatically! The ’70s Kong was somewhere between them.”

With huge thanks to my friend Lora, I have added photos of Brie’s memorable debut hosting of Saturday Night Live this past weekend. Although SNL is often hit-and-miss (at least in my opinion), Brie did a great job with the material and hopefully this will open some doors for her to do more comedic roles, which we already knew she could nail long before this past Saturday night. I’ll be adding screen captures of her appearance later in the week, and also hope to have some new layouts up very soon. For now, enjoy the photos!

I hope this turns out to be true, and given the source, it seems likely. Sarah is a fantastic up-and-coming actress, and I think she’ll be a great on-screen presence alongside Brie.

DEADLINE – The Beautiful Lie star Sarah Snook is in negotiations to appear in Lionsgate’s The Glass Castle, the Destin Daniel Cretton-directed adaptation of the best-selling memoir by Jeannette Walls.

Like the book, the film will chart Wall’s dysfunctional, impoverished upbringing in the American Southwest and its impact on her later writing career; the deal isn’t done yet, but Snook would play Walls’ sister opposite Brie Larson as glasscastleWalls, with Naomi Watt and Woody Harrelson as their parents. Cretton is writing the script with Andrew Lanham and Marti Noxon; Erik Feig and Gil Netter are producing. The Glass Castle is another potential hit for Lionsgate that’s based on successful IP – the book spent 261 weeks on the New York Times best sellers list and went on to sell nearly 3 million copies.

Snook recently starred in the Old Vic production of The Master Builder alongside Ralph Feinnes, and held the lead role in ABC’s 6-part miniseries The Beautiful Lie. Other credits include Steve Jobs, The Dressmaker opposite Kate Winslet and Liam Hemsworth, Holding The Man with Guy Pierce and Geoffrey Rush, the ABC pilot Clementine, and the Robert Heinlein adaptation Predestination with Ethan Hawke and Noah Taylor. She’s repped by UTA, Jenny Rawlings, and Shanahan Management.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY – This year’s Best Actress Oscar winner is heading to Studio 8H.

During this weekend’s Saturday Night Live, the show announced that Room star Brie Larson will host the May 7 episode, with Alicia Keys as that night’s musical guest.

Larson also shared the news with her fans on Twitter. “Way too excited about this to play it cool. EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! I’m hosting #SNL,” she wrote.

This will mark Larson’s SNL debut, and Keys’ third time on the show. No word yet on if the actress will bring her young pal and Room costar Jacob Tremblay along for the show (or if he’ll bring his adorable new dog, Rey).

Although filming for Kong: Skull Island only just wrapped (the project is now in post-production), Brie’s seemingly endless schedule has taken her to Japan, where she has been in Tokyo alongside her Room co-star Jacob Tremblay to promote the film’s theatrical release on April 8. I’ve added some great photos of the adorable duo at the premiere and press conference. Enjoy.
