Zhang Ziyi, international star of Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon, has joined the cast of Michael Dougherty's Godzilla: King Of The Monsters.
Interestingly, Ziyi's deal not only calls for her to appear in the Godzilla sequel, but to serve as a prominent figure within the Monster-Verse - what Legendary and Warner Bros. Are calling their monster-based cinematic universe.
The actress joins a cast that includes Kyle Chandler, Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Sally Hawkins and Ken Watanabe. The film is set several years after the events of Gareth Edwards' Godzilla. The actress will then appear in other monster installments, including Godzilla vs. King Kong, as her character is a key figure in the covert, creature-cataloging Monarch organization established in the films.
Godzilla: King Of The Monsters is set to be released March 22nd, 2019.
Zhang Ziyi has also appeared in such films as Hero and House of Flying Daggers.
