Variety is reporting that Krampus and Trick ‘r Treat director Michael Dougherty, is set to direct the Godzilla sequel.
Back in October it was reported that Michael Dougherty and his Krampus co-writer Zach Shields were brought on board to pen the script for the sequel. Initially reports surfaced that Dougherty would also direct but insiders said that the deal was to only write the sequel, not direct. Tonight however it’s official now that Legendary have now extended an offer for him to direct the project.
There is no premise as of yet for the upcoming sequel, though at the studio panel at San Diego Comic-Con in 2014, teased that the sequel would have ‘more monsters to play with’.
Godzilla 2, formally titled Godzilla: God of Monsters, is scheduled for cinematic release on the 22nd March 2019.
