Godzilla vs. Kong adds Deadpool 2’s Julian Dennison to cast
First reported by That Hashtag Show, and now confirmed by The Hollywood Reporter, Julian Dennison of Deadpool 2 and The Hunt for the Wilderpeople has joined the cast of Godzilla vs. Kong. It remains to be seen who else will be in the cast for the upcoming kaiju face-off, but the director previously teased that other actors from 2019’s Godzilla sequel will return.
The 2020 film serves as both a sequel to last year’s Kong: Skull Island as well as the 2014 Godzilla and the forthcoming Godzilla sequel. Adam Wingard, the filmmaker behind You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, will direct the film, marking just the second time that the two legendary movie monsters have appeared together in a film.
The script for Godzilla vs. Kong comes to us from a writer’s room run by Terry Rossio, who co-wrote the Pirates of the Caribbean films and also holds a story credit on 1998’s Godzilla. The room also included Star Trek Beyond writers Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, The Kingkiller Chronicles writer Lindsey Beer, Queen of the Air writer Cat Vasko, Maze Runner and Pacific Rim Uprising writer T.S. Nowlin, and comic & television writer J. Michael Straczynski.
It remains to be seen who will have final screenwriting credit on the film, and which characters from Godzilla 2 will appear, but Godzilla vs. Kong is set to arrive in theaters on May 22, 2020.
