Legendary Pictures has found their screenwriter for the planned Godzilla sequel. According to Deadline Max Borenstein will write the screenplay for the sequel. Gareth Edwards will return as director.
There was talk at Comic Con this year about adding King Ghidorah, Mothra and Rodan to the second film, so Borenstein has some big monster action in his future. The writer also penned the script for Skull Island, the King Kong origin story, that just added Tom Hiddleston to star.
The Godzilla sequel is planned for June 8, 2018.
