“Stranger Things” star Millie Bobby Brown will make her film debut in Legendary and Warner Bros.’ “Godzilla: King of Monsters.” Brown’s role and the film’s plot are currently being kept under wraps.

“Godzilla: King of Monsters,” the sequel to the 2014 American version of Toho’s famous kaiju franchise, will be part of a monster movie cinematic universe that also includes the upcoming film “Kong: Skull Island,” which Warner Bros. will release this March.

Michael Dougherty (“Krampus”) is directing and co-writing the new film, with Zach Shields as co-writer. Alex Shields is overseeing production for Legendary. The film is slated for a March 2019 release.

Gareth Edwards directed the 2014 reboot, which grossed $200 million domestically and $328 million overseas on an estimated production budget of $160 million.

Brown, who got her start in small roles on shows like “Once Upon a Time” and “Modern Family,” got her big break as the mysterious Eleven on Netflix’s “Stranger Things.”

Her performance earned her a Golden Globe nomination, and she is also up for a Screen Actors Guild Award this Sunday.

Brown is represented by WME and Affirmative Entertainment.
