Jessica Henwick joins the cast of Godzilla Vs. Kong
The upcoming monster movie Godzilla Vs. Kong has added a Game of Thrones alumni to its ensemble cast with Jessica Henwick, according to Variety. Henwick, who played Sand Snake Nymeria Sand on HBO’s sword-and-sorcery epic, also played Colleen Wing on the now-canceled Netflix series Iron Fist. She reprised character on the equally canceled Netflix series Luke Cage. Details about Henwick’s role in the monsters’ cinematic showdown is unknown at this point.
So far, the monster-sized cast includes Alexander Skarsgard (Big Little Lies), Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta), Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Demián Bichir (The Nun) and Danai Gurira (The Walking Dead, Avengers: Infinity War), Rebecca Hall (Vicky Cristina Barcelona), Kyle Chandler (Game Night) as Mark Russell, Ziyi Zhang (The Cloverfield Paradox) as Dr. Chen and Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) as Madison Russell.
The 2020 film serves as both a sequel to last year’s Kong: Skull Island as well as the 2014 Godzilla and the forthcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Adam Wingard, the filmmaker behind You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, will direct the film, marking just the second time that the two legendary movie monsters have appeared together in a film.
The script for Godzilla vs. Kong comes to us from a writer’s room run by Terry Rossio, who co-wrote the Pirates of the Caribbean films and also holds a story credit on 1998’s Godzilla. The room also included Star Trek Beyond writers Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, The Kingkiller Chronicles writer Lindsey Beer, Queen of the Air writer Cat Vasko, Maze Runner and Pacific Rim Uprising writer T.S. Nowlin and comic & television writer J. Michael Straczynski.
