Deadline reports Black Panther and The Walking Dead star Danai Gurira is now in talks to join the cast of Godzilla vs Kong.

Next up for Gurira is the ninth season of The Walking Dead on AMC where she'll return as Michonne. That feature, which marks the fourth installment of New Line and Warner Bros.' planned cinematic universe, will be directed by Adam Wingard for a 2020 release.

The Godzilla vs. Kong cast is now being built out, with Millie Bobby Brown and Julian Dennison already on board.

Though he had no fractures, there was reportedly trauma to his pelvis, hip, and knee, which should heal in three weeks. With Amal's help, Clooney eased his way off the cart and leaned on an assistant as he walked to the jet.

Godzilla: King of the Monsters will be directed by Michael Dougherty and stars Kyle Chandler, Millie Bobby Brown, Vera Farmiga, Zhang Ziyi, Anthony Ramos, Ken Watanabe, Randy Havens, O'Shea Jackson Jr., Aisha Hinds, Thomas Middleditch, Bradley Whitford, Sally Hawkins, Elizabeth Ludlow, and Charles Dance.

Godzilla: King of Monsters takes place five years after the events of 2014's Godzilla, and depicts a world in chaos after the discovery of the giant lizard creature. Following the upcoming blockbuster Godzilla: King of Monsters, the behemoth franchise will go full crossover with Godzilla Vs Kong.

The outlet also notes however that Gurira is circling another high-profile project, Paramount's upcoming fourth Star Trek. No surprise there - in Gurira's two breakout roles in The Walking Dead and Black Panther, she's played phenomenally intimidating and powerful warriors, which would make her fit perfectly in the Star Trek universe. Paramount has already hired director S.J. Clarkson to helm the next adventure of the Enterprise crew, making her the first woman to direct a Star Trek movie. Hemsworth made a brief but memorable appearance in J.J. Abrams' first Star Trek movie before heroically giving his life in the cold open.
