Adam Wingard, the director best known for his low-budget films such as You’re Nexthas landed the gig. According to THR, he is officially set to direct the Godzilla Vs. Kong for Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Wingard is currently working on the live-action adaptation of Death Note for Netflix.
It should be interesting to see what Wingard brings to the giant sized table. There are currently no plot details for the film. The movie is scheduled to be released on May 22, 2020, So there’s a little time before the hype train starts rolling. This giant monster cinematic universe (GMCU anyone?) started with Gareth Edwards‘ 2014 film Godzilla followed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts‘ Kong: Skull Island. Before Godzilla Vs. Kong drops in 2020, we have Godzilla: King of the Monsters coming from director Michael Dougherty.
