Last summer, the Netflix original series Stranger Things took over the Internet with talking Christmas lights, Barb and, of course, Eleven, the mysterious psychokinetic girl in love with Eggo waffles. With her distinct look and talent for delivering a powerful performance with very few words, Millie Bobby Brown became one of 2016's breakout genre stars, earning Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild nominations for her work. Now she's leveraged that success into her first film role.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Brown has joined the cast of Godzilla: King of Monsters, the sequel to 2014's Godzilla directed and co-written by Krampus helmer Michael Dougherty. The entire plot is still a secret, so we have no idea who Brown will play or how much screen time she'll get, but I can't imagine her talent for staring down monsters will be wasted here.
King of Monsters will be the third film in the Legendary/Warner Bros. MonsterVerse, following Godzilla and this year's Kong: Skull Island. By 2020, Kong and Godzilla will face each other on the big screen in Godzilla vs. Kong, and who knows how many other monsters could show up by then.
Will Brown stick around for the sequels? We have no idea, but it's an exciting possibility.
Now, get out there and make some fan art of Godzilla toasting a giant Eggo with his atomic breath.
Godzilla: King of Monsters arrives March 22, 2019.
