Vera Farmiga recently revealed some interesting new details to Metro about her character in the upcoming Godzilla: King of the Monsters.
“I play a paleobiologist,” Farmiga said. “She has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures and potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level. So she is like a DJ for the monsters.”
What do you think she’ll use this communication for? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below.
The new adventure pits Godzilla against some of the most popular monsters in pop culture history. The film follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized creatures, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
The film’s acclaimed ensemble cast is led by Farmiga (Up in the Air, The Conjuring films), and Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai) and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), the latter two reprising their Godzilla roles; Kyle Chandler (The Wolf of Wall Street, Manchester by the Sea); Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) in her feature film debut; Bradley Whitford (Get Out); Thomas Middleditch (HBO’s Silicon Valley); Charles Dance (HBO’s Game of Thrones); O’Shea Jackson Jr. (Straight Outta Compton); Aisha Hinds (Star Trek Into Darkness); and Golden Globe nominee Zhang Ziyi (Memoirs of a Geisha, Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon).
Michael Dougherty (Krampus) directs from a script he wrote with Zach Shields. The May 31, 2019 release is being produced by Mary Parent, Alex Garcia, Brian Rogers and Thomas Tull, with Barry H. Waldman, Zach Shields, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira serving as executive producers and Alexandra Mendes co-producing for Legendary.
