After months of running the writer’s room for Legendary’s ‘Godzilla’ franchise, Michael Dougherty has signed to not only write the upcoming sequel with his ‘Krampus‘ co-writer Zach Shields, he’ll be directing as well, Variety reports.




Back in 2015 Legendary and Warner Bros announced a partnership in which Legendary would develop the films with Warner Bros. distributing. The first film born of the partnership was ‘Kong: Skull Island‘ which opens in theaters nationwide on March 10, 2017. The reason for the arrangement, Legendary plans a new “ecosystem’ of giant monsters, old and new.

Dougherty has a history of making great films, the genre favorite ‘Trick ‘r Treat’ is just one example. I look forward to seeing what he does with ‘Godzilla 2’, set for release on March 22, 2019. It will be followed by ‘Godzilla vs. Kong’ on May 29, 2020.
