Skull Island, the new King Kong movie, is coming out soon and it looks great. It’s basically thanks to Australia, because parts of the movie were filmed in rural Queensland. Obviously, Australia can be a bit intimidating but it’s safe to say that the cast of Skull Island were not prepared for the amount of wildlife that could kill them.
Many cast and crew were spooked by the safety demonstration that was given, as well as the thick folders that warned them about the nasties lurking in the bushland.
“The safety officer was incredibly detailed about the number of things in the jungle that could kill us – brown snakes, funnel web spiders, plants,” explained Tom Hiddleston. Tom features in the film as an ex-SAS black ops officer recruited to go on the mysterious expedition to Skull Island. Hiddleston also was aware of the dangerous plant life.
Brie Larson, who also stars in the film as a photojournalist, wasn’t too happy about the wildlife either.
