The cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters is shaping up nicely, with Star Trek Into Darkness and Under the Dome‘s Aisha Hinds being the latest actress to sign on to co-star in the project, according to Deadline.
Hinds is joining a cast that so far includes Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga and Kyle Chandler as a family, with Ken Watanabe being the only returning actor from the first movie. O’Shea Jackson Jr. is also on board in an undisclosed role.
Michael Dougherty is directing the movie from a script he co-wrote with Zach Shields, who worked with him on the 2015 horror film Krampus. Production is expected to begin this summer in Atlanta, Georgia.
Plot details are being kept under lock and key, so we know next to nothing about the movie at this point. It’s the third installment in Warner Bros. and Legendary’s “MonsterVerse,” which is leading up to a Godzilla vs King Kong movie.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters hits theaters on March 22, 2019.
10 ‘Godzilla’ Kaiju That Need To Be In The MonsterVerse
With both 2014’s Godzilla and this year’s Kong: Skull Island managing to outperform expectations, the MonsterVerse from Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers is off to a good start. That being said, there’s room for growth amongst the roster of kaiju – thus far, only five classic kaiju have been confirmed to exist in the MonsterVerse: Godzilla, King Kong, Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah, and of those, we’ve only seen two of them in action. Should the series continue to succeed, the setting’s going to need more than original monsters like the M.U.T.O. and the Skullcrawlers – it will need to pull in some fan-favorite monsters from the classic creature features to keep things interesting. Here are ten of Toho’s best kaiju that would make fine additions to the MonsterVerse, with explanations of who they are and why they need to be a part of the setting.
