Shun Oguri, the Japanese actor best known for Takashi Miike’s Crows Zero and Gintama, is set to join the cast of director Adam Wingard’s Godzilla vs. Kong.

The movie will mark Oguri’s first Hollywood production. He joins Alexander Skarsgard (True Blood), Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2), Rebecca Hall (Iron Man 3), Jessica Henwick (Iron Fist), and Brian Tyree Henry (Atlanta). Stranger Things‘ Millie Bobby Brown (who will also star in next year’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters) is also signed on to star. The film marks the fourth entry in Legendary Pictures’ Monster-Verse, which began with 2014’s Godzilla (directed by Gareth Edwards), and continued with last year’s Kong: Skull Island (from Jordan Vogt-Roberts).

Plot details are sparse, presently, and filming is expected to begin shortly. Godzilla vs. Kong will punch its way into UK cinemas on the 22nd May, 2020.
