Nicholas Grunas On King Kong In Detroit

DETROIT, MI - News of plans for "King Kong : Skull Island" movie shot and set in Detroit has given some unexpected attention to a local artist who is a fan of the legendary ape.

Nicholas Grunas, 37, from southwest Detroit, created four one-of-a-kind, doctored up prints last fall as a fun way to celebrate a "Throwback Thursday" contest on a website.

Each shows King Kong terrorizing different parts of Detroit ranging from the Book Cadillac Hotel and Wurlitzer Building to Ford Field and Jefferson Avenue near the Renaissance Center.

These prints, based on actual photos of the city, are starting to go viral and have Grunas fired up to see the film that will reportedly star Michael Keaton, J.K. Simmons and Tom Hiddleston.

"I didn't plan on doing any more," Grunas told MLive.com. "But with the news of the movie being shot in my hometown, I just might have something up my sleeve."

You can check out all of Grunas' King Kong vs. Detroit work in the photo...
