As if we couldn’t be more excited for Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, it sounds as if we’ll be getting some good old fashioned practical monster FX once it gets here!
Dougherty took to Twitter to answer a couple of fan questions, and we have the gleeful responses right here for you!
Millie Bobby Brown (“Stranger Things”), Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring, “Bates Motel”), Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”), Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe (Godzilla), Sally Hawkins, and O’Shea Jackson, Jr., star.
Director Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat) co-wrote the script with Zach Shields. The film was referenced in the recent giant monster feature Kong: Skull Island.
Alex Garcia will oversee the tentpole for Legendary. 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 22, 2020.
Legendary and Warner Bros. announced in late 2015 that all future King Kong and Godzilla movies would be developed by Legendary and distributed by Warner Bros., starting with Kong: Skull Island. Legendary currently holds a distribution deal with Universal, but in order to re-team Godzilla and King Kong, the studio returned the rights to WB.
