Jason Liles is making headlines for his intense portrayal of the giant gorilla, George, in the film adaptation Rampage.
In our recent interview, Liles teased his next role would be big, and he was telling the truth. He is set to star in Godzilla 2 (aka Godzilla: King of Monsters) as King Ghidorah, one of Kong’s longtime enemies.
King Ghidorah is a giant three-headed winged dragon covered in gold scales. Besides being terrifying, the giant beast has the ability to shoot gravity beams out of all three heads. King Ghidorah made its first appearance back in 1964 in Ghidorah: The Three-Headed Monster and has since battled Godzilla multiple times. In the upcoming movie, the dragon will appear alongside two other monsters Rodan and Mothra who will all take on Godzilla.
Godzilla 2 centers on crypto-zoologist agency Monarch, “as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.”
Michael Dougherty, the filmmaker behind Trick ‘r Treat and Krampus, is directing from the script he co-wrote with Zach Shields.
Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, and Millie Bobby Brown star. O’Shea Jackson Jr., Zhang Ziyi, and Thomas Middleditch will be co-starring. Bradley Whitford, Aisha Hinds, Charles Dance, Sally Hawkins, and Ken Watanabe will be reprising their roles as members of Monarch from 2014’s movie.
Godzilla 2 will open in theaters on March 22, 2019, followed by Godzilla vs. Kong on May 22, 2020.
