Vera Farmiga has joined the cast of Godzilla 2!
A month ago, we learned that Millie Bobby Brown, the breakout star of Netflix's original series Stranger Things, landed a role in Legendary’s Godzilla: King of Monsters that is being helmed by Krampus director Michael Dougherty. Then, about a week ago, it was revealed that Friday Night Lights star Kyle Chandler will portray her father in the sequel to 2014 blockbuster that was directed by Gareth Edwards. And now, according to Variety, Farmiga has come on board to portray Chandler's wife/Brown's mother.
Yup. That's right! Farmiga will go from mothering future-psycho Norman Bates to keeping a close, watchful eye over Eleven. Of course, I'm referring to Farmiga's Emmy-nominated role as Norma Bates in A&E's Bates Motel. You'll also recognize Farmiga as ghost hunter Lorraine Warren from James Wan's The Conjuring films.
Krampus and Trick'r'Treat filmmaker, Michael Dougherty, will helm Godzilla: King of the Monsters, based on a script he wrote with his Krampus co-writer, Zach Shields.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters is scheduled for a March 22, 2019 release.
