"No matter where you go, there you are."


Adam Wingard will direct Godzilla vs Kong


Following Legendary’s and Warner Bros. Pictures’ success with Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island, the companies have come together to create an epic, new shared cinematic franchise. All-powerful monsters become towering heroes for a new generation, revealing a mythology that brings together Godzilla and Legendary’s King Kong in an ecosystem of other giant super-species, both classic and new. 

Godzilla: King of Monsters starring Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown, is currently in production. That will be followed by Godzilla vs Kong, which has a release date of 22nd May 2020.  It also now has a director in the shape of Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest).

In March, Legendary set a writers room to work on the script for Godzilla vs. Kong, with Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean) as its head. The team includes Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne (Star Trek Beyond), Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, T.S. Nowlin, Jack Paglen, and Babylon 5 creator J. Michael Straczynski.

Both Godzilla and Kong features the human Monarch organization. Shortly following Legendary’s pact with NBC Universal, Legendary acquired rights to additional classic characters from Toho’s Godzilla universe, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah. This paved the way for developing a franchise centered around Monarch and anchored by Godzilla, King Kong, and other famous creatures.
