Godzilla Sequel Locks Returning Screenwriter Max Borenstein

Although it’s no huge surprise given the success of this summer’s monster blockbuster, Deadline today confirms that Gareth Edwards’ planned Godzilla sequel will again feature a screenplay by Max Borenstein.

Teased at Comic-Con, the next Godzilla sequel hits theaters on June 8, 2018 and, according to Legendary’s SDCC panel, the King of Monsters will be bringing a few friends (Rodan, Mothra and King Ghidorah were suggested as potential future foes).

Edwards will first direct his already-announced Star Wars spin-off film while Borenstein is providing the screenplay for another Legendary monster feature, the King Kong-adjacent Skull Island. That film hits theaters on November 4, 2016 and will star Tom Hiddleston.
