While it'll be a while yet before the sequel to Godzilla vs. Kong comes out, the team is already in production on the movie in Queensland, Australia. Today, Legendary Pictures offered up some initial details on the movie's plot, as well as some information about who is involved with the project, in a new press release (via ComicBook).
According to the release, the upcoming film will look further into the histories of the two starring monsters and their origins, as well as why they protect humanity and Earth from other monsters and from humans themselves. It's not a whole lot to go off of, but it does seem to suggest that we'll get even more screentime with the monsters this time around.
In terms of cast and crew, Adam Wingard is once again directing, with cast members Brian Tyree Henry, Rebecca Hall, and Kaylee Hottle returning, and Dan Stevens, Fala Chen, Alex Ferns, and Rachel House joining. Terry Rossio, Jeremy Slater, and Simon Barrett are writing the film. Newly announced are the return of director of photography Ben Seresin, production designer Tom Hammock, editor Josh Shaeffer, and composer Tom Holkenborg, and the addition of a few new crew members, including VFX supervisor Alessandro Ongaro, costume designer Emily Seresin, makeup artist Sabrina Wilson, and hairstylist Gloria Pasqua.
Legendary has not yet announced a release date or title for this film, but it is currently scheduled to hit theaters sometime in 2024.
