Kong: Skull Island has two new visitors. Deadline reports that Brie Larson and Russell Crowe are in talks to sign on to the King Kong film. Larson will be playing the female lead, while Crowe is filling one of the roles vacated by J.K. Simmons and Michael Keaton earlier this month.

The two will join Tom Hiddleston in the film, which aims to fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island.

Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts, Kong: Skull Island is set for a March 10th, 2017 release date.
