It’s taken a while, but things are now gearing up on the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla. The first cast member was revealed a couple of weeks ago when Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown was announced as part of the cast.
Now Variety reports that Kyle Chandler has joined her. Chandler is usually a good choice, having been great in everything from Friday Night Lights and Super 8 to Wolf Of Wall Street and the recent Oscar nominee, Manchester By The Sea.
It also shouldn’t be too much of a shock that he will be playing Brown’s father. The exact plot is being kept under wraps, but as the title suggest, while Godzilla will be the king, the sequel will be introducing us to various other monsters, such as Mothra and and Rodan.
Michael Dougherty is directing and also co-wrote the script for the movie with Zach Shields. It’s expected to shoot this year for release in March 2019. Then in 2020, we’re getting a real monster mash-up, with Godzilla Vs. Kong.
