David Callaham, best known as the scenarist of Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, is attached as the writer for the next film in the MonsterVerse franchise featuring Godzilla and Kong, according to the Hollywood Reporter. The news comes hot on the heels of the successful box-office run of Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, the fifth film in the Warner Bros. franchise.

However, it is worth noting that Wingard and Legendary are yet to have arrive at a deal and that the filmmaker is attached to A24's next titled Onslaught.
