Stranger Things’ Millie Bobby Brown to star in Godzilla: King of the Monsters!
Legendary has announced today that Stranger Things breakout Millie Bobby Brown is set to star in the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters, the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla. She was recently nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award and People’s Choice Award for her portrayal of “Eleven” in the Netflix series.
Brown is the first cast member to be revealed for the upcoming sequel, which is being written by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r Treat, Krampus) and Zach Shields, with Dougherty set to direct.
It remains to be seen what the plot for the upcoming sequel will be, but Legendary previously announced the addition of several more Toho kaiju, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah, is possible and potentially some original monsters like the 2014 film’s MUTO.
The film is part of the Legendary and Warner Bros. cinematic Monsterverse, which also includes the upcoming Kong: Skull Island, due out in theaters on March 10, 2017, and even a Godzilla vs King Kong feature (a rematch of the first time the pair collided in 1962) now set for a May 29, 2020 release.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be released on March 22, 2019.
Directed by Gareth Edwards (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), 2014’s Godzilla brought in $529 million at the global box office and starred Aaron Johnson, Ken Watanabe. Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, and Bryan Cranston.
