Legendary is moving along with its MonsterVerse at a nice steady pass. The studio is currently working on the sequel Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and will then follow it up with Godzilla vs Kong. King of the Monsters has been busy assembling quite an impressive cast. Millie Bobby Brown and Kyle Chandler lead the ensemble, and now the Godzilla sequel has added a star from the smash hit horror film Get Out. Bradley Whitford has joined the cast of Godzilla: King of Monsters.
According to Variety, Bradley Whitford will be joining the cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters. There are no details about his role, as the plot and character details for the film are being kept tight under wraps. Whitford has held a number of TV and film roles over the course of his impressive career. He is perhaps best known for his role on the hit TV show The West Wing, where he won an Emmy for his performance as Josh Lyman.
Bradley Whitford was most recently seen in the horror film Get Out, one of the biggest hits of the year. Directed by Jordan Peele, the film was a social horror story about a black man who visits his white girlfriend's parents house for the first time, and unravels a conspiracy surrounding the seemingly peaceful suburbs. Whitford played the father of Allison Williams' (Girls) father. Get Out made a ton of money over the course of its run and broke several records. It was the highest grossing film domestically from a first-time black director, and it's currently the highest grossing debut film based on an original screenplay.
So far, the cast of Godzilla: King of the Monsters includes Stranger Things breakout Millie Bobby Brown and Friday Night Lights' Kyle Chandler. Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring), and O'Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton) round out the rest of the cast. The sequel is being directed by Michael Dougherty with a screenplay written by himself with Zach Shields.
The plot of Godzilla: King of the Monsters is being kept secret, but it will feature a showdown between the titular monster and three of his most iconic frenemies: Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. In addition to being a sequel to 2014's Godzilla: King of the Monsters will also help set up Godzilla vs Kong, which will pit Godzilla against the classic movie monster King Kong. Kong was introduced earlier this year in Kong: Skull Island, which garnered mostly positive reviews from critics.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is scheduled to hit theaters on March 22, 2019. To learn more about the sequel, make sure you check out everything we know so far about the upcoming movie.
