GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS (2019): Millie Bobby Brown Cast In Sequel

Millie Bobby Brown To Play Role In Godzilla: King Of Monsters

Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown is set to act in the planned science fiction film Godzilla: King of Monsters.

For her work as the mysterious Eleven on the in-house Netflix series, Brown was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award as well as a People’s Choice Award, reflecting the critical acclaim that was showered on her performance as well as the show itself.

Although it is fair to assume that Brown’s experience on one of the most highly successful science fiction shows on TV today, to say nothing of her manifest talent, means that she could hold her own in an installment of the newly-revived Godzilla series, one might wonder what kind of role a child could play in a modern installment of the franchise. Past Godzilla films that featured child characters prominently are not fondly remembered by fans and if they are anything to go by it does not bode well for the sequel. However, director Michael Dougherty managed to use a child actor to great effect in his last film Krampus, so let’s hope that he is able to use Brown to similar effect in King of Monsters.

Per Superherohype:

Brown is the first cast member to be revealed for the upcoming sequel, which is being written by Michael Dougherty (Trick ‘r TreatKrampus) and Zach Shields, with Dougherty set to direct.

It remains to be seen what the plot for the upcoming sequel will be, but Legendary previously announced the addition of several more Toho kaiju, including Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah, is possible and potentially some original monsters like the 2014 film’s MUTO.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former UCLARadio.com disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for HonorSociety.org to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
