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."

However, this photograph artist—as he calls himself—is quickly moving from unappreciated to celebrated.

New clients include Grace Keros and the Ford Motor Company. Keros’s American Coney Island restaurant in Detroit was a pit stop for both President Barack Obama and Governor Mitt Romney when they campaigned in Detroit. Ford Motor Company purchased 36 pieces as gifts for noted employees. Clearly, Nick’s stock is on the rise.
