I think Skull Island only uses the basic framework of the original rather than being a true remake. Kind of like Clash of the Titans 2010.

I used to find it weird that I paid less attention to Kong in a lot of these movies and focused on the humans and what kind guns they are shooting. It started for me, with the Peter Jackson King Kong when I saw all those Tommy Guns being passed around.

Tainted by the presence of Michael Bay, however.

Daniel Craig is good, but $75 million a picture good?

As far as I can tell, they just made the offer. He may turn them down. He'd be an idiot to do so, but it can happen.

Can Hollywood please stop trying to make Jack Ryan a thing? They clearly can't do him right, why not do a Without Remorse movie?

If it's an web series, it means there's gonna be a lot of talking, walking, standing around in places and no action at all

It's not a webseries, it's an Amazon series. If they're willing to spend some money, and if they've got John Krasinski and Michael Bay, they are, then it'll be closer to Bosch and Man in the High Castle and less like that awful Zombieland pilot.

I don't know. The Man in the High Castle was kinda lacking in a lot of places, mostly on being creative in how they want to perceive this alternate world.
