Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings screenwriter Dave Callaham has lined up his next project, and is due to pen the next instalment of Legendary’s Godzilla v Kong franchise!

The announcement comes soon after the release of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire. Adam Wingard directed the feature and created the story with regular collaborator Simon Barrett, and Terry Rossio. Legendary has signalled a desire to have Wingard return for another round in the director’s chair, but there’s no deal in play at the moment. The director has already lined up his next project, an original film with A24 titled Onslaught.

Meanwhile, this won’t be Callaham’s first round with Godzilla. The writer penned the early drafts (and received a story by credit) for Godzilla in 2014. The screenwriter is best known for originating The Expendables franchise and worked on films like Mortal Kombat, Wonder Woman 1984, and co-writing Spider-Man: Across the Spider-Verse. Dave Callaham is currently writing the third and final film in the series, Spider-Man: Beyond the Spider-Verse, with Phil Lord and Chris Miller.

No word yet on any of the ‘who, what, when’ details of this Legendary Monsterverse follow-up, but stay tuned for more news as we hear it.
