Weeks after it was announced Netflix had canceled Iron Fist, its star Jessica Henwick has already lined up a new gig.
First reported by Variety, Henwick has joined the ever-growing cast of Legendary's Godzilla vs. Kong. This marks the first new gig for the actress following the surprising cancellation of Marvel and Netflix's Iron Fist, in which Henwick starred as Colleen Wing for two seasons.
Henwick joins the recently announced Rebecca Hall, as well as Millie Bobby Brown, Alexander Skarsgard, Deadpool 2 actor Julian Dennison and Atlanta's Brian Tyree Henry. Details surrounding Henwick's role are being kept under wraps for now.
The film, which just recently kicked off production, will be the fourth film in Legendary's planned cinematic universe -- currently titled the MonsterVerse -- following 2014's Godzilla, last year's Kong: Skull Island and next year's Godzilla: King of the Monsters. While details surrounding the plot are currently sparse, the film will (obviously) see Godzilla and Kong come face to face for one reason or another.
Along with starring in Iron Fist for two seasons, Henwick also appeared in Marvel and Netflix's The Defenders and the second season of Luke Cage. She also appeared in HBO's Game of Thrones as one of the Sand Snakes. This will mark her biggest film role to date, following a very minor role in 2014's Star Wars: The Force Awakens. She is also set to appear in the sci-fi flick Underwater next year alongside Kristen Stewart and T.J. Miller.
Godzilla vs. Kong, directed by Adam Wingard, will release on May 22, 2020. The film stars Kyle Chandler, Ziyi Zhang, Millie Bobby Brown, Danai Gurira, Bryan Tyree Henry, Demian Bichir, Alexander Skarsgard and Julian Dennison.
