Godzilla vs. Kong is an upcoming 2020 American science fiction monster film produced by Legendary Pictures, and the fourth entry in the MonsterVerse, following Godzilla: King of the Monsters. It will be released to American theaters on May 22, 2020.
On October 14, 2015, it was officially announced that Legendary Pictures will be remaking King Kong vs. Godzilla. The project had been rumored ever since Legendary acquired the rights to King Kong and announced Kong: Skull Island in 2014, and the rumors have become even more prominent after the project was moved from Universal Pictures to Warner Bros.
On September 10, 2015, Legendary announced its plans to create a shared cinematic universe featuring both Godzilla and King Kong, as well as other giant monsters including Mothra, Rodan, and King Ghidorah. Legendary's Godzilla was the first entry in this universe, followed by the upcoming Kong: Skull Island in 2017 and Godzilla: King of the Monsters in 2019, culminating in Godzilla vs. Kong in 2020.
On May 10, 2016, it was revealed that Godzilla: King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong had gotten new release dates of March 22, 2019 and May 29, 2020.
On March 10, 2017 it was revealed that the film's writer's room had been established, consisting of Patrick McKay, J.D. Payne, Lindsey Beer, Cat Vasko, T.S. Nowlin, Jack Paglen, and J. Michael Straczynski. The writers have been tasked with creating and thinking of the best basic ideas and beats for the script until a writer is actually hired to properly write it out.
In May 2017, Warner Bros. moved the film's original release to a week early from May 29 to May 22 for a Memorial Day weekend release.
