Is Danai Gurira Ready to Beam Up for Star Trek 4?

Danai Gurira in Talks for Godzilla vs. Kong, Also Circling Star Trek 4

First reported by Deadline, Gurira, who is coming off Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War, is now in early talks for Godzilla vs. Kong, although details surrounding her potential role are now unclear. Should the actress sign on she will join Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) and Julian Dennison (Deadpool 2, The Hunt for the Wilder People) in the 2020 Monsterverse movie.

Next up for Gurira is the ninth season of The Walking Dead on AMC where she'll return as Michonne.

Gurira is in early talks to star in Godzilla vs. Kong, which will be the fourth installment of the Legendary/Warner Bros. cinematic universe following 2019's Godzilla: King of the Monsters, according to Deadline. Adam Wingard, the filmmaker behind You're Next, The Guest, and Blair Witch, will direct the film. With giant creatures and big budgets, the MonsterVerse has seen success with both Godzilla and Kong: Skull Island.

Bobby Brown plays the daughter of Vera Farmiga's Dr. Emma Russell from the beast-hunting organization Monarch, and of Kyle Chandler's Mark Russell, who embarks on a rescue mission with two stars from the original Godzilla, Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins. Following the upcoming blockbuster Godzilla: King of Monsters, the behemoth franchise will go full crossover with Godzilla Vs Kong.

But that's not the only major franchise film that Gurira is circling. This one will definitely be in the same continuity as the last three movies and is set to be directed by S.J. Clarkson (Jessica Jones, Orange is the New Black). That makes her the first ever female director to helm a movie within the series.

The fourth Star Trek film was announced shortly before Star Trek Beyond opened in theaters.
