Following his recent role in Jordan Peele's Get Out, Bradley Whitford is joining the growing cast of the massive creature feature Godzilla: King of the Monsters.

The news of Whitford's casting comes from THR. It's not yet known what type of character will be played by Whitford, who recently co-starred as Dean Armitage in Jordan Peele's Get Out and also played Hadley in The Cabin in the Woods—just two of many memorable roles Whitford has played throughout his career.

Whitford joins a cast that includes Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, Ken Watanabe, Aisha Hinds, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Charles Dance, Thomas Middleditch, and Sally Hawkins reprising her role as Project Monarch scientist Dr. Vivienne Graham.

Plot details are being kept under wraps for now, but it was teased several years ago that the antagonistic creatures Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah are expected to appear in the follow-up film, which would make for quite a monster mash on a citywide (or even worldwide) scale.

Scheduled to come out in theaters on March 22nd, 2019, Godzilla: King of the Monsters will expand Legendary and Warner Bros.' MonsterVerse that includes the characters of the new Kong: Skull Island movie as well as the upcoming Godzilla vs. Kong film that has set Adam Wingard as its director and is scheduled to come out on May 22nd, 2020.

In the meantime, Michael Dougherty (Trick ’r Treat and Krampus) will direct Godzilla: King of the Monsters from a screenplay he wrote with Zach Shields, and we'll be sure to keep Daily Dead readers updated as more details are revealed.
