Merian C. Cooper's King Kong is a 2005 rewrite of the 1932 novelization of the original King Kong by Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland, featuring illustrations by DeVito. Authorized by the estate of King Kong's original creator Merian C. Cooper, the novel serves as the basis of DeVito's King Kong of Skull Island media property alongside the prequel/sequel novel Kong: King of Skull Island, originally published earlier that same year. It was originally published by St. Martin's Griffin on October 1, 2005.
For years, American filmmaker and showman Carl Denham has been recognized for his movies of untamed nature, shot in exotic locations around the globe. Now, in late 1932, he's about to embark on his most dangerous gamble - to film the movie that could make or ruin his reputation. Along with first mate Jack Driscoll, a camera crew, and actress Ann Darrow, guided only by an arcane map, Denham sets sail for the lost world of Skull Island.
