After a long 12-plus months of pandemic-related closures of movie theaters, the box office success of Godzilla vs. Kong is one of the first indications that theatrical releases are once again feasible. Now, the studio is in talks with director Adam Wingard to return for a sequel, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
When Godzilla vs. Kong was entering post-production, Godzilla: King of Monsters hit theaters and underperformed. Now, though, Godzilla vs. Kong is proving that the titans of the MonsterVerse have some fight left in them. Legendary Pictures is reportedly in talks with Wingard to come back for one or more future installments, with the potential title Son of Kong.
The timeline on this sequel would be up in the air, as THR notes that Warner Bros. currently has Wingard attached to direct a live-action film based on the Thundercats cartoons, and Paramount has him ready to make a sequel (not a remake, apparently) to the classic 1997 John Woo action film Face/Off.
