Production begins on Godzilla vs. Kong!
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is still some six months from hitting theaters, but Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures are already gearing up for that film’s follow up, Godzilla vs. Kong! The highly anticipated battle between the King of the Monsters and the King of Skull Island has just commenced principal photography which will take place in Hawaii and Australia.
The film’s official plot synopsis reads: “In a time when monsters walk the Earth, humanity’s fight for its future sets Godzilla and Kong on a collision course that will see the two most powerful forces of nature on the planet collide in a spectacular battle for the ages. As Monarch embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths clues to the Titans’ origins, a human conspiracy threatens to wipe the creatures, both good and bad, from the face of the earth forever.”
Godzilla Vs. Kong stars Alexander Skarsgård (Big Little Lies), Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things and the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters), Rebecca Hall (Christine), Brian Tyree Henry (Widows), Shun Oguri (Gintama), Elza González (Baby Driver), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Kyle Chandler (Manchester by the Sea) and Demián Bichir (The Nun).
Adam Wingard (The Guest) directs from a script by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean), and produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, and Brian Rogers. Kenji Okuhira, Yoshimitsu Banno, Jon Jashni and Thomas Tull will executive produce, while Jay Ashenfelter, Jen Conroy and Tamara Kent will serve as co-producers.
The two monsters will battle it out on the big screen in 3D and 2D and in select IMAX theaters on May 22, 2020.
