Next Legendary Monsterverse Movie to be Directed by Grant Sputore

Legendary has announced that the next theatrical title in their Monsterverse franchise will be directed by Grant Sputore, known for his work on the acclaimed film I Am Mother. The screenplay for the upcoming installment is being written by Dave Callaham, the talent behind Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

The Monsterverse franchise, which began with Godzilla in 2014, has since expanded to include Kong: Skull Island, Godzilla: King of the Monsters, and more. In addition to films, the Monsterverse has branched out into streaming with the series Monarch: Legacy of Monsters on Apple TV+. The universe also includes video games, graphic novels, toys, and live experiences.

Fans of the Monsterverse can look forward to the next chapter in the saga under the direction of Grant Sputore, promising an exciting addition to the popular franchise.
