We had learned two weeks ago that a sixth installment in Legendary’s 10-years-strong Monsterverse is in the works, and The Hollywood Reporter brings us the latest update tonight.

The site reports that Adam Wingard, who directed both Godzilla vs. Kong and Godzilla x Kong, will NOT be returning to direct the upcoming follow-up to Godzilla x Kong.

THR notes, “The parting of ways is described as amicable and stemming from timing issues. The door remains open for a future return, per insiders.”

Wingard is instead returning to his roots with the upcoming Onslaught, an action-thriller for A24 that’s said to be more in the vein of his earlier movies You’re Next and The Guest.

Dave Callaham (Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings) is writing the upcoming sixth movie in the Monsterverse franchise. We have no idea if it’ll be a follow-up to Adam Wingard’s two movies, or if it will take the film franchise down a new path. Stay tuned.

Beginning with the Godzilla film in 2014 and continuing through 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, 2019’s Godzilla: King of the Monsters, 2021’s Godzilla vs. Kong, and most recently the record-breaking Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire, the Monsterverse has accumulated over $2B at the global box office and expanded into the highly successful event series, Legendary’s Monarch: Legacy of Monsters for Apple TV+. We recently learned that “Monarch” is getting a second season, with more Monsterverse spinoff shows being planned at Apple TV+.

“Apple TV+ has struck a new multi-series deal with Legendary Entertainment, which includes multiple spinoff series based on the franchise,” the recent press release had stated.
