After the success of Godzilla and King Kong, Warner has high hopes for its planned monster mash-up, Godzilla vs. Kong, which is planned for release in 2020. A year before that, they’re expanding the Godzilla universe with Godzilla: King Of Monsters.
Millie Bobby Brown has already been cast in a major role, with Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga as her parents. Now they may have company from Straight Outta Compton’s O’Shea Jackson Jr. (aka Ice Cube’s son), who Variety reports is in talks for the movie.
Michael Dougherty is directing and also co-wrote the script for the movie with Zach Shields. It’s expected to shoot this year for release in March 2019. No specific plot or character details have been released, although it known the sequel will be introducing us to various other monsters, such as Mothra and Rodan. The only actor from Godzilla who’s likely to return for the sequel is Ken Watanabe as Dr. Ishiro Serizawa.
