Bates Motel star Vera Farmiga joins Godzilla 2 line-up

February 28th, 2017 by Marc Comments

A couple of weeks back we learned that Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown had joined the cast of the upcoming Godzilla 2 and now we’ll know who will play her mother.

Bates Motel’s Vera Farmiga has joined the cast of the monster movie as Brown’s on screen mum while already cast Kyle Chandler will play the dad of the character.

Very little is known about the movie – the third in Legendary’s shared universe coming after Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island.

We know that Krampus director Michael Dougherty is helming from a script he penned with Zach Shields and that it looks likely that Ken Watanabe (who uttered the normal immortal ‘let them fight’ in the first movie) will return for the sequel.

Godzilla: King of Monsters hits cinemas on March 22nd, 2019, with the monster mash-up Godzilla vs. Kong slated for the following year on May 29, 2020.


Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
