Apple TV+ and Legendary Television’s untitled Godzilla series is adding to its cast. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kurt and Wyatt Russell have joined the cast of the monster series, tentatively titled Hourglass. The series is set in the aftermath of the battle between Godzilla and the Titans in San Francisco. It follows a family’s journey to uncover its buried secrets that link them to the secret organization, Monarch. It will also directly connect to Legendary’s Monsterverse.
While details on their roles are unknown, the father and son join a cast that already includes Anna Sawai (Pachinko), Ren Watabe, Kiersey Clemons (Transparent, Zack Snyder’s Justice League), Joe Tippett (Mare of Easttown), and Elisa Lasowski (Versailles). The series will also be the first time that Kurt and Wyatt Russell have acted in the same project in over 2 decades. In the 1998 film Soldier, Wyatt played a young version of his father’s character. The Russells have also been featured in (separate) projects in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. Kurt played Ego in Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, while his son portrayed John Walker, a.k.a. the U.S. Agent in The Falcon and the Winter Soldier on Disney+.
Matt Shakman, who directed Marvel Studios’ WandaVision for Disney+, is set to direct the first two episodes of the series. Shakman will also serve as an executive producer on the series. The still-untitled series hails from Chris Black (Outcast, Star Trek: Enterprise) and Matt Fraction (Hawkeye), who co-created the series. Black will also serve as the showrunner of the series.
