Millie Bobby Brown is the most recognizable young star from Stranger Things and appropriately she’s the first from the under age cast to land a big movie role.
The Hollywood Reporter broke news late Friday evening that Millie Bobby Brown has secured a lead role in Godzilla: King of Monsters, the sequel to Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla. Any details about her role are being kept clearly under wraps for the time being.
Edwards was originally thought to be the first choice to direct Godzilla: King of Monsters before he was lured away by Disney and Lucasfilm for Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Legendary ultimately recruited Krampus director Michael Dougherty to helm the monstrous sequel.
Joining Doughterty is his Krampus co-writer Zach Shields, who also co-wrote Godzilla: King of Monsters. The film will take place in the same universe as this spring’s Kong: Skull Island as part of a new big monster-themed cinematic universe.
Ultimately Kong and Godzilla will clash on the big screen. Hopefully Millie Bobby Brown’s mystery character hangs around to see that happen.
Godzilla: King of Monsters drops into theaters a little over two years from now on March 22, 2019.
