Adam Wingard is Directing ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’!!



In the wake of Legendary and Warner Bros. tapping Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat) to direct Godzilla: King of the Monsters, they’ve just made an equally inspired choice by hiring Adam Wingard to helm mash-up MonsterVerse film Godzilla vs. Kong!

Wingard got his start with micro-indie films such as Pop Skull and A Horrible Way to Die, as well as heading Bloody Disgusting’s very own V/H/S and even directing a segment in the followup V/H/S/2. He also helmed Lionsgate’s awesome You’re Next and went on to make their Blair Witch sequel. To say we’re excited is an understatement.

Wingard tweeted tonight

I’m really very excited. This is a total playground.

THR broke the news. We don’t have any specific plot details at this time.

A writers room, led by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean), was put together to work on the script back in March. Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne (Star Trek Beyond), Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, Maze Runner movies writer T.S. Nowlin, Jack Paglen (Transcendence), and “Babylon 5” creator J. Michael Straczynski joined Rossio in the development room.

Godzilla vs. Kong is set to arrive on May 22, 2020.
