Apple’s Godzilla and the Titans Live-Action Series Finds Its Director


Matt Shakman has come onboard the live-action Godzilla series at Apple from Legendary Television, Variety reports.


The show was ordered at Apple back in January. Shakman will direct the first two episodes and serve as an executive producer on the series. The untitled series continues the story of the Legendary Monsterverse established in films like “Kong: Skull Island” and 2014’s “Godzilla.”


Shakman most recently directed all of the Disney+ Marvel series “WandaVision” in addition to executive producing. Shakman picked up an Emmy nomination for directing the series.



Following the thunderous battle between Godzilla and the Titans that leveled San Francisco and the shocking new reality that monsters are real, the 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.


Chris Black and Matt Fraction co-created the series with both executive producing. Black will also serve as showrunner. Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell of Safehouse Pictures will also executive produce along with Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita of Toho Co. Ltd. Toho is the owner of the Godzilla character and has licensed the rights to Legendary for the series.
