Chinese superstar Zhang Ziyi has joined the cast of Legendary’s Godzilla sequel as a key Monarch figure, who will go on to play a significant role on the studio’s Monsterverse moving forward.
Zhang Ziti is an international star for her role in Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon.
Zhang will first appear in the sequel to 2014’s Godzilla, titled Godzilla: King Of Monsters, joining Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown in the follow-up that is set several years after the events of the original pic.
Michael Dougherty is directing from a script by Dougherty and Zach Shields.
The actress will then appear in other monster installments, including Godzilla Vs Kong, as her character is a key figure in the covert, creature-cataloging Monarch organization established in those films.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is set to be released March 22, 2019. Godzilla vs Kong is slated to bow in 2020.
