New King Kong Flick to Film in Son Doong Cave

Son Doong will soon be paid a visit by another of the world’s most exotic attractions (albeit a fictional one) – King Kong.

Filming for “Kong: Skull Island,” was confirmed for Vietnam earlier this month and is expected to start after Vietnamese officials give the script the green light, reports Thanh Nien. Some cast members, including Samuel L. Jackson, are already preparing to depart.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, location scouts for the film singled out the world’s largest known cave as the setting for a number of scenes.

According to IMBD, in addition to the caves and mountains of northern Vietnam, Australia and Hawaii will also be used as locations for the epic prequel.

It’s unclear if filming will have an impact on the US$3,000 per trip tours of the cave that are booked clear through the end of the year. You’d figure there would be enough room for everyone since a 7,000kg gorilla would be a spec amongst Son Doong’s skyscraper-sized caverns (yes, we know that King Kong won’t actually be there).
