Film slated for May 2020

Entertainment news source The Hollywood Reporter revealed on Saturday that Julian Dennison (Deapool 2's Firefist) will star in Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment's Godzilla vs. Kong film.

The rest of the film's cast so far includes Van Marten (Avengers: Infinity War) and Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).

Adam Wingard (Death Note) is directing the film.

The Hollywood Reporter noted that Legendary Entertainment set up a writer's room led by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean films) to write the new film's script in March 2017. Other writers involved in the script include Patrick McKay, J.D. Payne (Star Trek Beyond), Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, T.S. Nowlin (Maze Runner), Jack Paglen (Transcendence), and J. Michael Straczynski (Babylon 5).

Godzilla vs. Kong is slated for May 22, 2020.

Legendary licensed the Godzilla film rights in 2010, and produced Gareth Edwards' 2014 Godzilla film. The film opened in the United States in May 2014, and earned over US$500 million worldwide. The sequel, Godzilla: King of Monsters, is currently slated for May 2019.

Legendary Pictures moved the Kong: Skull Island prequel movie film, which it was producing with Universal Studios, to Warner Bros. in September 2015 to allow for the possibility of the Godzilla vs. Kong crossover. Warner Bros. is planning to develop a new "ecosystem" of both new and classic giant super-species. Variety reported in October 2016 that Legendary Pictures is supporting the production of Godzilla vs. Kong. Kong: Skull Island opened in the United States in March 2017.
