Deadline reports that the actor and award-winning playwright's in negotiations to star in an unnamed role in the fourth Godzilla movie by Legendary/Warner Bros out May 31, 2019. She would be joining Millie Bobby Brown and Julian Dennison.

Meanwhile Paramount is also talking to her about joining S.J. Clarkson's "Star Trek" film in an unnamed role. There's no official release date for "Star Trek 4" but S.J. Clarkson is meeting with the cast, which includes Chris Hemsworth reprising his role as Captain Kirk's father George Kirk.
