STARS ARRIVE FOR ‘KING KONG’ SHOOT
Samuel L. Jackson, Brie Larson and crew arrive in Hanoi
Yesterday we reported on the ‘Fast and the Furious 8’ Vietnam film shoot rumours, but we can tell you with 100% certainty that the cast and crew of ‘Kong: Skull Island’ have arrived in the country, ready to shoot the ‘King Kong’ origin film.
Over 120 people arrived at Noi Bai International Airport as part of the production, including the film’s director Jordan Vogt-Roberts and stars Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and John Goodman. The production is a truly global enterprise, with the crew having already completed shooting in Hawaii, Detroit, Queensland, and now Vietnam.
‘Kong: Skull Island’ will film in Vietnam for one month, shooting at Son Doong caves, Ha Long Bay and Ninh Binh province.
If you’re up north, you you could be lucky to bump into one of these stars. Keep your eyes peeled. Autograph hunters may need to hire themselves a boat or cave guide though.
We’ll keep you up to date with all the news from the production as it unfolds.
