The 2020 film serves as both a sequel to last year’s Kong: Skull Island as well as the 2014 Godzilla and the forthcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters. Adam Wingard, the filmmaker behind You’re Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, will direct the film, marking just the second time that the two legendary movie monsters have appeared together in a film.

The script for Godzilla vs. Kong comes to us from a writer’s room run by Terry Rossio, who co-wrote the Pirates of the Caribbean films and also holds a story credit on 1998’s Godzilla. The room also included Star Trek Beyond writers Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne, The Kingkiller Chronicles writer Lindsey Beer, Queen of the Air writer Cat Vasko, Maze Runner and Pacific Rim Uprising writer T.S. Nowlin, and comic & television writer J. Michael Straczynski.

Godzilla vs. Kong is set to arrive in theaters on May 22, 2020.
