Legendary’s shared monsters universe culminates in an epic battle.
This weekend marks the release of Kong: Skull Island, the second film in the cinematic universe that unites two of the world’s most legendary monsters. The universe began with 2014’s Godzilla and will continue on March 22, 2019 with Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Then, on May 29, 2020, Godzilla and Kong will battle to the death up on the big screen.
Yeah. That is going to be AWESOME.
THR reports that development on Godzilla vs. Kong has officially begun, as Legendary has brought in a team of writers to crack the mash-up film. Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl) will head the writing crew, and he’s being joined by Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne (Star Trek Beyond), Lindsey Beer (Dungeons & Dragons), Cat Vasko (Queen of the Air), T.S. Nowlin (The Maze Runner), and J. Michael Straczynski (World War Z).
Once the story is worked out, a writer will be brought in to pen the script.
