Eleven will meet the giant green beast ‘Godzilla’
Last week we announced that Michael Dougherty had been hired to direct the ‘Godzilla’ sequel after he had been hired to write the script with Zach Shields his partner on Krampus.
Now he has cast the breakout star of Netflix ‘Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown to take on the beats in ‘Godzilla: King of the Monsters’, Legendary’s sequel to its 2014 creature feature.
King of Monsters is part of a giant monster cinematic universe that also includes Kong: Skull Island. Kong is due to hit theater March 10 while King of Monsters is scheduled for a release on March 22, 2019.
In October 2015, Legendary and Warner Bros. made a joint announcement that all future “King Kong” and “Godzilla” films would be developed by Legendary and distributed by Warner Bros., starting with “Kong: Skull Island” in March. Legendary currently holds a distribution deal with Universal, but in order to re-team Godzilla and King Kong, Legendary decided to send the rights back over to Warner Bros. to be able to create this new “ecosystem” of giant super-species, both classic and new.
“Godzilla 2” is currently dated for Mar. 22, 2019, with “Godzilla vs. Kong” set for May 29, 2020.
