According to Variety, Workaholics and Inventing Anna actor Anders Holm has been tapped for a recurring role in Apple TV+’s upcoming live-action Godzilla and Titans series. Holm will be joining previously announced cast members Kiersey Clemons, Anna Sawai, Joe Tippett, Elisa Lasowski, newcomer Ren Watabe, Wyatt Russell, Kurt Russell, and Mari Yamamoto.
The untitled series is expected to be set within the world of Legendary’s MonsterVerse. “Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the untitled MonsterVerse series will explore one family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch,” reads the synopsis.
The first two episodes will be directed by WandaVision director Matt Shakman, who will also serve as an executive producer. Co-creators Chris Black and Matt Fraction will executive produce, with Black also serving as showrunner. Executive producers also include Safehouse Pictures’ Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, and Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita for Toho. Toho is the owner of the character Godzilla as well as having licensed the rights to Legendary for this upcoming project.
Following the success of Godzilla vs. Kong, which earned over $467 million at the worldwide box office, Legendary began expansion talks in the MonsterVerse through a series, with Apple immediately showing interest in the project. It didn’t take long for a deal to be struck between the streamer and Legendary, with the company already developing the next untitled film in the MonsterVerse in addition to this new series.
