Zhang Ziyi - Cast For Godzilla: King Of The Monsters
Zhang Ziyi, who is most well known in the US for her rolls in movies like Crouching Tiger Hidden Dragon, Heroes, and House of Flying Daggers has been away from the Hollywood scene for a few years now. She has stayed active in Asian cinema but her fans overseas have been wondering when she would make her next appearance. She recently wrapped up production on a sci fi feature with JJ Abrams that is supposedly connected to the Cloverfield universe and now, Godzilla.
Legendary and Warner Brothers have announced that Zhang will be joining what they are calling, heir monster based- cinematic universe. Not only will she be in sequel to 2014's Godzilla along with Millie Bobbie Brown (11 from Stranger things,) Kyle Chandler, and Vera Farmiga, but Godzilla vs. Kong as well.
It isn't yet clear who her character will be but we do know she will be a key member of the covert, creature cataloging organization established in Godzilla. These movies won't be out until 2019 and 2020 so we just have to wait for some more information, trailers and set photos to learn more about her involvement.
