'Black Panther' Star Danai Gurira In Talks To Join 'Godzilla Vs. Kong'

First reported by Deadline, Gurira, who is coming off Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, is now in early talks for Godzilla vs. Kong, although details surrounding her potential role are now unclear.

Gurira is in early talks to star in Godzilla vs. Kong, which will be the fourth installment of the Legendary/Warner Bros. cinematic universe following 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters, according to Deadline.

The Godzilla vs. Kong cast is now being built out, with Millie Bobby Brown and Julian Dennison already on board. Adam Wingard, the filmmaker behind You're Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, will direct the film.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be directed by Michael Dougherty and stars Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Zhang Ziyi, Anthony Ramos, Ken Watanabe, Randy Havens, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, Thomas Middleditch, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Elizabeth Ludlow, and Charles Dance. Godzilla hasn't been seen for years, "but there's paranoia and endless speculation about whether he is the only one out there or whether we're threatened by others like his kind".

As for Star Trek, while there are now multiple Trek films in development at Paramount, Deadline affirms that Gurira is now circling the forthcoming fourth installment.

Additionally, Gurira is said to be in negotiations for a starring role in the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong crossover monster movie. At the same time, it's being reported that the in-demand actor is also being eyed for a role in Paramount's Star Trek 4, which is set to be helmed by former Jessica Jones director S.J.

Danai Gurira may boldly go where no Walking Dead star has gone before. Hemsworth made a brief but memorable appearance in J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek movie before heroically giving his life in the cold open.
