Actor Alexander Skarsgard has joined the cast of Legendary's "Godzilla vs Kong".

Adam Wingard is directing the film, which also stars actor Julian Dennison.

According to the Hollywood Reporter, plot details are unclear, but the actioner will feature the two titular classic monsters squaring off in some form.

Skarsgard is expected to play the leader of a military unit.
