Kyle Chandler to Co-Star as Millie Bobby Brown’s Dad in ‘Godzilla’ Sequel (EXCLUSIVE)

It’s a Netflix reunion of sorts: Kyle Chandler, star of “Bloodline,” is set to join “Stranger Things” break-out Millie Bobby Brown in Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” sources tell Variety.

Chandler will play Brown’s father in the Legendary sequel.

“Krampus” helmer Michael Dougherty is directing the project and wrote the script with Zach Shields.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Ken Watanabe and Elizabeth Olsen starred in the 2014 “Godzilla” reboot, directed by Gareth Edwards, though sources say only Watanabe is likely to return for the sequel.

Plot details are unknown.

Alex Garcia will oversee the tentpole for Legendary. “Godzilla: King of Monsters” is set for relase on Mar. 22, 2019, with the monster mash-up “Godzilla vs. Kong” slated to bow the following year on May 29, 2020.

Legendary and Warner Bros. announced in late 2015 that all future “King Kong” and “Godzilla” films would be developed by Legendary and distributed by Warner Bros., starting with “Kong: Skull Island” in March. Legendary currently holds a distribution deal with Universal, but in order to re-team Godzilla and King Kong, the studio returned the rights to WB.

Chandler is coming off Netflix’s second season of “Bloodline,” which is about to go into its third and final season of production, and was recently seen in the Oscar-nominated drama “Manchester by the Sea.”

He is repped by Gersh and Brillstein Entertainment.
