Although we’re still a little over a month away from the release of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Legendary Pictures has already completed production on the next instalment of the MonsterVerse, with director Adam Wingard making the announcement on Instagram that filming has wrapped on Godzilla vs. Kong.
The film will bring together the King of the Monsters as featured in 2014’s Godzilla and next month’s sequel, as he clashes against another of cinemas most iconic monsters in King Kong from 2017’s Kong: Skull Island. It will be the second time the two titans have clashed on the big screen after Toho’s 1962 crossover King Kong vs. Godzilla.
In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.
Godzilla vs. Kong is being directed by Adam Wingard (The Guest, Blair Witch) and sees Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things), Kyle Chandler (Bloodline) and Ziyi Zhang (The Cloverfield Paradox) reprising their roles from the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters, while new additions to the MonsterVerse include Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies), Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), Demian Bichir (The Hateful Eight), Rebecca Hall (Holmes and Watson), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Eiza Gonzalez (Baby Driver), Shun Oguri (Crows Zero), and Lance Reddick (The Wire). It is set for release on March 13th 2020.
