"The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah", reads the press release (via ScreenCrush).

Although the movie was previously titled Godzilla: King of Monsters, the latest press release does not use that title, implying that it might change. We only know that new director Michael Dougherty and writer Zach Shields worked on the current screenplay together, having previously written horror gem Krampus as a team.

As the third film in the MonsterVerse, this untitled Godzilla sequel will be followed by Godzilla vs. Kong, which recently landed You're Next and Blair Witch filmmaker Adam Wingard to direct.

Eventually, Godzilla 2 finally landed a new director in January 2017.

Filming is now underway in Atlanta and the film is expected to arrive in March 2019.

The film stars Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Zhang Ziyi, Anthony Ramos, Ken Watanabe, Randy Havens, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, Thomas Middleditch, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins and Charles Dance. Serving up the battles they did in Godzilla (2014), it seems that we could be preparing to see the fight once more from the human side of things, and the struggles the fights will cause.

The movie is set to release on March 22, 2019. Given the roster of adversaries along with Shields" and Dougherty's previous work on Trick "r Treat and Krampus, this movie has the potential to be a real monster mash! Indeed, this sequel sounds like an all out monster mash, and there's little doubt that fans of the franchise will be thrilled to hear that Godzilla's most iconic villains will be showing up on the big screen once again. The post-credits stinger at the end of this year's Kong: Skull Island promised that a trio of new monsters would be joining the MonsterVerse (as Legendary's Kong-Godzilla shared universe has been dubbed).
