We’re now one step closer to witnessing two of the world’s most famous giant monsters face off on the big-screen! And now Hollywood has found a man to control these two monsters! THR reports that Adam Wingard has just closed a deal to take the helm of GODZILLA VS. KONG for Warner Bros. and Legendary Entertainment. With movies like “You’re Next”, “The Guest” and “Blair Witch” under his belt, this monstrous battle royale will undoubtedly be the biggest project Wingard has tackled so far.
Adam Wingard is apparently a “massive” fan of both the Godzilla and King Kong movies and recently wrapped up production on DEATH NOTE for Netflix. The adaptation of the manga series by Tsugumi Ohba and Takeshi Obata finds a young man (Nat Wolff) coming across a supernatural notebook which grants him the power to kill any person simply by writing down their name on the pages. DEATH NOTE also stars Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley and Shea Whigham and is set to debut on Netflix on August 25, 2017. Before the two titans throw down in GODZILLA VS. KONG, we’ll see Michael Dougherty’s GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS on March 22, 2019. The MonsterVerse film (yes, that’s the actual name) is now in production and stars Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown.
