Colin Hanks and Kyle Chandler ("Early Edition") are the latest to join in Peter Jackson's remake of King Kong, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The duo join stars Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody in the reimagination of the classic story. Hanks is on board to play a production assistant to filmmaker Carl Denham (Black) with Chandler in negotiations to play a 1930s B-movie actor opposite Watts' character, Ann Darrow.

Andy Serkis is providing the reference for the character of Kong, who will be a completely CGI character, as well as playing the role of Lumpy the cook.

Jackson said he is excited to work with Hanks and Chandler.
