TheWrap has confirmed that Michael Keaton has indeed taken a role in Legendary's Kong: Skull Island. He'll be joining Tom Hiddleston and J.K. Simmons who were previously cast in the prequel. It's crazy that they've been able to get both leads from Whiplash and Birdman which are highly buzzed awards-level films of 2014.
