Zhang Ziyi joins Godzilla sequel in major role

Godzilla Zhang Ziyi Legendary Monsterverse Kong

International super star Zhang Ziyi (HOUSE OF FLYING DAGGERS, CROUCHING TIGER, HIDDEN DRAGON) has a monstrous new role on her hands as she joins Legendary Pictures' GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS.

Not only that, it sounds as though she'll be an important part of the studio's burgeoning "Monsterverse," as a press release explicitly states...

Legendary has closed a deal for Zhang Ziyi to join their Monsterverse in a major franchise role, beginning with the next Godzilla film opposite Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Bradley Whitford and Ken Watanabe. The film is set several years after the events of the 2014 Godzilla, and the character is a significant figure within the covert Monarch organization established in that film.

That sounds like the lovely actress won't be limited to squaring off against Godzilla alone, but will likely be featured in 2020's GODZILLA VS. KONG (which is being helmed by Adam Wingard). After that is anybody's guess. Will there be a planet to live on after such a film?

Michael Dougherty is directing GODZILLA: KING OF THE MONSTERS from a script by Dougherty and Zach Shields. It will be released on March 22, 2019.
