Adam Wingard quickly got an impressive reputation in horror circles with A Horrible Way To Die, You’re Next and The Guest, before going a little more mainstream with last year’s Blair Witch. However, he’s not planning to jump massively up the budget scale, with by far his biggest movie yet, as THR reports that he’s just signed on to helm Godzilla vs. Kong.
The film is part of Warner/Legendary’s attempts to build a massive monster universe. This year’s King Kong tale, Skull Island, will be followed by Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, with the behemoth coming together on the screen in 2010 with Godzilla vs. Kong.
A writers room led by Pirates Of The Carribean scribe Terry Rossio is now working on the film’s screenplay, but no plot details have been released. It’ll be in cinemas May 2020.
