She has already made a name for herself going up against a weird creature in last year's hit Netflix series Stranger Things. For her first movie role, Millie Bobby Brown is graduating to a monster of a whole new scale, with Legendary Pictures announcing that she is set to star in Godzilla: King Of The Monsters.
Michael Dougherty (Krampus), who had been at work on the script with co-writer Zach Shields, was confirmed recently as the director of the sequel to Godzilla (2014). We don't yet know what will happen in the new movie, but given the creature's warmer reception after fighting off mutant beasties in the previous outing, we would imagine Godzilla will be back to battle some more humungous competition. As for Brown? Details on her character have yet to be released.
The new film is part of Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros' planned giant monster movies, which includes Kong: Skull Island, out in cinemas now. King Of Monsters has been scheduled for 22 March 2019, while Godzilla Vs. Kong stomps in on 22c May 2020. We can only imagine that the clash between the pair comes when Kong arrives to inform Godzilla that there can be only one king of the monsters, and since he traditionally has it as part of his name, it is him.
Brown, meanwhile, will be back on screens as Stranger Things' Eleven later this year.
