The pair join a King of the Monsters cast that also includes Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, O’Shea Jackson Jr. and Aisha Hinds, as well as the returning Ken Watanabe.
Hawkins was nominated for an Academy Award for her performance opposite Cate Blanchett in Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine.

He was recently seen on the big screen in Underworld: Blood Wars.
The previous Godzilla film brought in $529 million at the global box office and starred Aaron Johnson, Ken Watanabe. Elizabeth Olsen, Sally Hawkins, and Bryan Cranston.
Dougherty is also writing King of the Monsters, which has not yet revealed official plot details. Legendary previously announced, however, the addition of several more famous Toho kaiju, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.
King of the Monsters is part of the Legendary and Warner Bros. cinematic Monsterverse, which includes, in addition to Godzilla and the recent Kong: Skull Island, an upcoming Godzilla vs Kong feature film, set for a May 22, 2020 release.
