Trick R’ Treat and Krampus director set for Godzilla 2

January 24th, 2017 by Marc Comments


The Legendary monsters universe that began with Godzilla and will continue with Kong: Skull Island has just moved closer to making its third chapter a thing with the appointment of a very fun director!

Yes, Variety has confirmed that Krampus writers Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields will be penning the sequel and not only that, Dougherty will also direct the monster sequel too.

Word on the street is that Legendary have been trying to get him onboard to direct for a while.

Dougherty also wrote and directed Trick R Treat for Legendary so his connection them is already established.

Both his horror outings so far have been big on fun so it should be interesting to see what he does with Godzilla.

Do you think he’s a good choice? Let us know…

Godzilla 2 is set for March 22nd, 2019,

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….
