“Stranger Things” breakout Millie Bobby Brown has closed a deal to star in Legendary’s Godzilla: King of Monsters, the next installment in the monster movie franchise, Variety reports.
Krampus and Trick ‘r Treat helmer Michael Dougherty is directing and wrote the script with Zach Shields.
Some interesting new information reveals that Dougherty was initially hired to run the Godzilla universe writing room, which is probably one of the reasons for today’s Kong-sized surprise.
Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, and Elizabeth Olsen starred in Gareth Edwards’ 2014 reboot, but their involvement in the sequel is unknown at this time.
Godzilla: King of Monsters is currently dated for Mar. 22, 2019, with Godzilla vs. Kong slated for May 29, 2020.
Brown is one of the standouts in Netflix’s “Stranger Things” and we’re excited to see her develop as an actress in one of the biggest franchises of all time!
