Following the success of the 2014 Godzilla reboot and Kong: Skull Island, the next entry in the Warner Bros ‘MonsterVerse’ will see Godzilla fighting with some of the most feared monsters ever to destroy a screen.
Filming is now underway in Atlanta, Georgia – many miles away from Japan (obviously!) – on Godzilla: King of the Monsters. The tale will see monster-mashing agency Monarch facing off against classic giant creatures such as Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah. Oh, and Godzilla, of course! Basically it’s a giant peeing contest, as the gargantuan monsters battle to prove who’s the greatest (hmm, the movie’s title may be a spoiler…) Unfortunately, this isn’t the best situation for humanity to find itself amidst, and it threatens our very existence.
Krampus writer/director Michael Dougherty is keeping the directorial chair nice and toasty, while the movie boasts a cast including Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Bradley Whitford, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr, Zhang Ziyi, Thomas Middleditch and Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown.
Godzilla: King of Monsters is currently scheduled for release in the first half of 2019.
