Kurt Russell & Son Wyatt Join Cast of Legendary’s Godzilla Series


Apple TV+ and Legendary Television’s Godzilla series is becoming a (Russell) family affair.

THR reports that Kurt and Wyatt Russell have been cast in the series, which is set in the world of Legendary’s Monsterverse franchise. Details on their roles are being kept quiet at the moment.

The father and son join a cast that also includes Pachinko star Anna Sawai, Ren Watabe, Kiersey Clemons, Joe Tippett and Elisa Lasowski.

The untitled series is set in the aftermath of the battle between Godzilla and the Titans that decimated San Francisco (as depicted in 2014’s Godzilla, which launched the film franchise). It will follow a family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets and a legacy linking them to the secret organization known as Monarch.


Chris Black (Outcast, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye) co-created the series, with Black serving as showrunner. Matt Shakman (WandaVision) is set to direct the first two episodes. All three will executive produce along with Safehouse Pictures’ Joby Harold and Tory Tunnell, as well as Hiro Matsuoka and Takemasa Arita of Toho Co. Ltd., which owns Godzilla and other monster characters and has licensed them to Legendary.
