‘Super 8’ star Kyle Chandler joins ‘Godzilla’ sequel

Following the news that Millie Bobby Brown had joined the cast of the Godzilla sequel, it’s now being reported that Kyle Chandler has signed on to play her character’s father.

According to Variety, Kyle Chandler (Manchester by the Sea, Bloodline, Super 8) is the second major casting addition to Legendary’s Godzilla: King of Monsters.

Chandler has made a career out of playing fatherly/mentor roles over the years, and that’s set to continue in this sequel as he’ll be co-starring as Millie Bobby Brown’s character’s dad.

Plot details are still under wraps, but it’s a safe bet the story will involve giant monsters wrecking stuff while humans try to stay out of their way.

Krampus director Michael Dougherty takes over from Gareth Edwards on Godzilla: King of Monsters, based on the script Dougherty co-wrote with Zach Shields and will arrive in theaters on March 22, 2019.

Godzilla: King of Monsters will form part of Legendary’s ongoing big monster universe. Kong: Skull Island is set for release this March, while the monster mashup Godzilla vs. Kong will follow in 2020.

Cinema Blend noted that “It’s going to be interesting to see how these two worlds cross over. The size of the two beasts could be an issue, as some have pointed out, and so could the era. From what we know of Skull Island, it is set in the 1970s and follows a team of explorers as they venture into the mysterious, primordial land of the title. Godzilla takes place in the present day, so they may have to get creative with just how the King of the Monsters comes to throw down with the legendary giant ape. We don’t know how they’re going to do it, but we can’t wait to find out.”
