After a breakout role in the popular Netflix series Stranger Things, it was only a matter of time before Millie Bobby Brown made her feature film debut. Many fans of the Star Wars films   have pointed out her uncanny resemblance to a young Carrie Fisher and raised the possibility of a Princess Leia standalone movie. And while that film seems destined to happen at some point  —  after all, for better or worse, the internet typically gets what it wants  —  it appears that Brown has targeted another blockbuster science fiction franchise for her big screen break out.

Last October, Legendary tapped Krampus filmmaker Michael Dougherty and co-writer Zach Shields to pen the screenplay for Godzilla 2; not long after, we exclusively reported that Dougherty was also in talks to direct the follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ blockbuster revival. At the time, more than one source informed us that it was pretty much a done deal, but Legendary didn’t make Dougherty’s hiring publicly official until today.

Casually tucked into an official press release to announce the hiring of three new production executives at Legendary, you will find two interesting pieces of info: First is the official title for Godzilla 2, the follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ 2014 monster blockbuster, and second is the title for Pacific Rim 2 — which already had a title, but has apparently been given a much better one.

Just yesterday it was announced that Krampus director Michael Dougherty and co-writer Zach Shields are re-teaming with Legendary Pictures to pen the screenplay for Godzilla 2, the follow-up to Gareth Edwards’ blockbuster monster flick. We’ve known for some time that Edwards isn’t returning to helm the sequel, and with the Rogue One director out of the picture, we’ve been curious to see who might take his place. As it turns out, Dougherty isn’t just writing Godzilla 2 — he’s also directing it.

‘Godzilla 2’ Hires ‘Krampus’ Writers for Merry Monster Mayhem

We don’t know what Gareth Edwards is plotting after Rogue One: A Star Wars Story hits theaters, but we do know that he won’t be returning to helm Godzilla 2. The upcoming sequel to his 2014 monster movie has picked up a pair of interesting writers, however, with Krampus duo Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields on board to pen the screenplay — but don’t expect to see the giant lizard battling it out with a demonic jack-in-the-box (unless…).

Gareth Edwards Won’t Return to Direct ‘Godzilla 2’

When Legendary’s latest version of Godzilla opened to big box office back in 2014, the studio was quick to move ahead on a sequel with the first film’s director, Gareth Edwards, back to direct the film. But then progress stalled. Legendary announced that they were making a King Kong film, Kong: Skull Island, and that Kong and Godzilla would clash in Godzilla Vs. Kong, provided that neither Godzilla nor Kong’s mom is named Martha. Godzilla 2 was bumped back to 2019, a long time between installments in the sequel-minded world of modern Hollywood. I mean I know Godzilla is really big and moves slow, but this is really slow.

We learned a lot from this year's Comic-Con about Legendary's plans for some epic monster movie action in the future, from the announcement of a 'King Kong' prequel with 'Skull Island' and the confirmation of 'Godzilla 2.' Max Borenstein has quickly become the studio's go-to writer for their tentpole projects, and the man who penned the first 'Godzilla' will now return to script the sequel.
