Corey Hawkins and Jason Mitchell to reunite in Kong: Skull Island.

Straight Outta Compton stars Corey Hawkins (Dr. Dre) and Jason Mitchell (Eazy E) will reunite in Legendary’s big budget King Kong flick, Kong: Skull Island.

The film, slated for a March 10, 2017 release, is about a crew of explorers who board a ship to a mysterious, creature-laden isle that is also the home of Kong, the king of the apes.

The Hollywood Reporter exclusively reports Mitchell is in negotiations to play the role of an easygoing pilot.

Corey Hawkins, Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson and Toby Kebbell are already cast in the movie.

Jordan Vogt-Roberts is directing the project, which brought on screenwriter Derek Connolly for rewrites as it heads toward a late-October production start in Hawaii.

I’m super excited and very proud of Corey and Jason!
