“Krampus” Scribes To Pen “Godzilla” Sequel

“Krampus” writers Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields are set to pen the script for the second installment in the rebooted “Godzilla” franchise at Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures.

The pair may also be apart of a potential writers room to help create the upcoming Godzilla-King Kong universe, something akin to what Hasbro did for “Transformers” not that long ago and the fruits of which we’ll see starting with “Transformers: The Last Knight” next year.

Acclaimed “X2” and “Superman Returns” scribe Dougherty has strong ties to Legendary, directing “Trick ‘r Treat” for them which has become a cult hit, he also did “Krampus” for them.

“Godzilla 2” is currently dated for March 22nd 2019 while “Godzilla vs. Kong” opens May 29th 2020.
