Straight Outta Compton star O’Shea Jackson Jr. is in negotiations to join Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, reports Variety.
The movie is already jam-packed with genre vets, including “Stranger Things” stand-out Millie Bobby Brown, along with the awesome Kyle Chandler (“Friday Night Lights”, Super 8) and Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring, “Bates Motel”).
Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus helmer Michael Dougherty is directing the project from a script he penned with Zach Shields.
The site also adds Ken Watanabe is the only original cast member likely to return for the second installment.
Godzilla: King of Monsters hits theaters on March 22, 2019, with the monster mash-up Godzilla vs. Kong slated to bow the following year on May 29, 2020.
