Legendary Pictures has closed a deal with “Godzilla” scribe Max Borenstein to pen the screenplay for the sequel to that film. Gareth Edwards is returning as director on the follow-up which has been set for a June 8th 2018 release.
Borenstein also wrote Legendary’s upcoming “Skull Island” which is set to star Tom Hiddleston and has Jordan Vogt-Roberts directing. Considering these films are under the same banner with the same writer, it has been speculated we’ll eventually see some giant monster crossover action.
Borenstein is also involved in the upcoming “Minority Report” TV series being developed at 20th Century Fox TV and Paramount TV.
