Vera Farmiga (“The Conjuring”) has been added to the growing list of actors and actresses set to appear in Michael Dougherty’s (“Krampus”) upcoming “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” the sequel to the 2014 “Godzilla.” Farmiga will play the mother of Millie Bobby Brown’s character opposite Kyle Chandler, who will play Brown’s father in the film (via Variety).
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is slated to be the third in Legendary Pictures’ planned MonsterVerse, which will weave together the stories of the current run of “Godzilla” and “King Kong” films. The next MonsterVerse movie is “Kong: Skull Island,” debuting March 10. The MonsterVerse will culminate in the 2020 showdown flick “Godzilla vs. Kong.”
“Godzilla: King of the Monsters” shares its name with a 1956 adaptation of the original Japanese “Godzilla” film. “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” draws most its plot and footage from the original 1954 film, but specific scenes were removed in the localization process.
When “Godzilla” released in 1954 it entered theaters with a heavy anti-nuclear weapons message (the film debuted a mere nine years after the bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki), as well as pointed political and cultural messages specific to Japan. Many of these scenes were removed for the Western release, replaced with roughly 16 minutes of alternate footage.
Debuting in theaters on March 22, 2019, “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” is a production of Legendary Pictures directed by Michael Dougherty and starring Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga.
