O’Shea Jackson Jr. in Talks For Lead Role in Godzilla Sequel

O’Shea Jackson Jr. is reportedly in negotiations to star in Legendary’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, Variety reports.

Jackson, who’s currently filming the STX action flick Den of Thieves, will join Stranger Things star Millie Bobby Brown, along with Kyle Chandler and Vera Farmiga in Michael Dougherty’s Godzilla Reboot. The sequel would mark the most high-profile role yet for Jackson since portraying his father Ice Cube in the 2015 NWA Biopic Straight Outta Compton.

With the recent released of Kong: Skull Island, Legendary and Warner Bros. are paving the way for a classic 2020 showdown in Godzilla vs. Kong.
