Godzilla: King Of The Monsters Adds Thomas Middleditch
The giant creature feature news just keeps coming. On the heels of yesterday’s hiring of Adam Wingard to direct Godzilla Vs. Kong, there’s another new casting announcement for the movie that will lead into it, Godzilla sequel King Of The Monsters. Silicon Valley’s Thomas Middleditch has joined the ensemble.
Variety brings word that Middleditch will be part of a cast that already includes Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Anthony Ramos and Aisha Hinds as the new faces, plus Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins’ scientists returning from the 2014 ‘Zilla film.
Little is known about the plot that director Michael Dougherty and co-writer Zach Shields have come up with, but you can bet on some giant monster smashing action and likely a thematic undercurrent to go along with it. Will there be an appearance by Gamera?
Godzilla: King Of The Monsters is primed to arrive on 22 March 2019 and the cameras are rolling now. In addition to his duties on the HBO series (which recently scored a fifth season), Middleditch is one of the voices for DreamWorks Animation’s Captain Underpants, due on 28 July and appears with Keanu Reeves in Replicas, currently without a UK release date. Plus! Trivia fact: he was a voice in Kong: Skull Island, so he already has a monster movie credit…
