Adam Wingard will not return to work on the next part about Godzilla and Kong

According to the media, Wingard's departure was amicable and its official reason was the creator's busy schedule. However, the door remains open for him if he would like to return in the future.

Director he resigned from creating another part in favor of a new project, which he recently announced. He is currently working on the thriller “Onslaught”, which will be produced for the A24 studio. Filming is scheduled to start in the fall.

Since new work is a priority for Wingard, he would not be able to start work on the next installment of the monster series. For this reason, the studio has already hired a new screenwriter. This will be Dave Callahamwho has already co-written scripts for productions such as “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings” (2021) and “Spider-Man: Through the Multiverse” (2023).

The MonsterVerse is left on a high by Wingard. It is highly probable that “Godzilla & Kong: A New Empire” will soon become the highest-grossing installment in the series, taking that title away from “Kong: Skull Island” (2017). In addition, Wingard's last show, compared to the previous parts, was the cheapest ($135 million).

Wingard's first film in the series was Godzilla vs. Kong. It was released during the pandemic both in theaters and on HBO Max. Its profits were so great ($100 million domestically and $470 million worldwide) that it was considered one of the works that “saved cinema” in those difficult times.
