Celebrated “The Conjuring” and “Bates Motel” actress Vera Farmiga has spoken about her character in the upcoming “Godzilla: King of the Monsters” for Legendary and Warner Bros. Pictures.
Talking with Metro (via Bloody Disgusting), she was asked to describe her character to which she replied: “She has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures and potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level. So she is like a DJ for the monsters.”
Farmiga plays Dr. Emma Russell, a paleobiologist. She’s also mother to Mille Bobby Brown’s Madison Russell and wife to Kyle Chandler’s Mark Russell with the three of them serving as the lead characters of this follow-up to both the 2014 reboot and 2017’s “Kong: Skull Island”.
Filming on the movie wrapped last September, but she confirms she has an upcoming day of additional photography on the film which was directed by Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”). Of Dougherty, she describes him as being ‘very careful’ and wanting many takes to get things right.
She also says the film has more of a conservation theme than a typical monster movie. Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins, Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds and Zhang Ziyi co-star in the film which opens March next year.
