‘Stranger Things’ star Millie Bobby Brown cast in ‘Godzilla’ sequel

Earlier this week it was confirmed that Michael Dougherty will direct the upcoming sequel Godzilla: King of Monsters. It has now been reported that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown has joined the cast.

According to Variety, Brown has closed her deal for the movie. The outlet notes that Dougherty was initially hired to run the writers’ room and there is no word on the return of any 2014 castmembers: Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olson.

Brown won much acclaim last year for her role in Netflix’s sci-fi hit Stranger Things, playing the mysterious, superpowered Eleven. In November it was confirmed that she would be returning for the second season, which is expected later this year.

The film will be based on the script Dougherty co-wrote with Zach Shields and will arrive in theaters on March 22, 2019.

Back in December the studios more concrete plans, cementing the release date.


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.”
