Godzilla vs. Kong to Come Early

And so will I! Word has hit our desks that Legendary’s highly anticipated monster-mash Godzilla vs. Kong will be arriving a few days earlier than anticipated. Originally set for release on May 29, 2020, the filck will now hit theaters on May 22, 2020, for Memorial Day Weekend.

Last we reported, the studio was putting together a writers room to break the story, with Terry Rossio, the veteran scribe best known for co-writing the Pirates of the Caribbean movies, tapped to head the creature feature league. Once he and his cohorts work out the best ideas and beats for the story, a writer will be chosen to write the script.

Joining Rossio in the room will be: Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, who co-wrote Star Trek Beyond and are working on Star Trek 4; Lindsey Beer, who is currently adapting The Kingkiller Chronicles for Lionsgate; Cat Vasko, currently penning Warner Bros.’ adaptation of period circus love story Queen of the Air; T.S. Nowlin, writer of the Maze Runner movies who already worked for Legendary on its Pacific Rim sequel; and J. Michael Straczynski, the comic book writer and creator of 1990s sci-fi show “Babylon 5” whose recent credits include World War Z and co-creating Netflix show “Sense8” with the Wachowskis.

Legendary, with Warner Bros., is in the middle of the monster universe which is centered around classic silver screen creatures Godzilla and King Kong. They are now in the casting stages of a sequel to Godzilla, titled Godzilla: King of the Monsters, with Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, and Millie Bobby Brown so far on the roll call. That movie has a March 22, 2019, release date.
