After the success of the 2014 Godzilla remake directed by Gareth Edwards from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros., it was only a matter of time before more monster movies would make their way back to theaters.

With a Godzilla sequel and Kong: Skull Island in the works, moviegoers might have a chance to see the two beasts battle it out on the big screen together.

According to Deadline, production company Legendary Pictures has moved the King Kong film from Universal to Warner Bros. in order to keep the monsters under the same distributor, which will make it easier to do a crossover film.

King Kong could take on Godzilla in a film not too far in the future — plans are reportedly happening quickly, with moves being made in Japan, the location of Godzilla rights holder Toho. King Kong's rights are in the public domain.

It would be the first time we'd see the massive ape go against the enormous reptile since their showdown in the 1962 film King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Meanwhile, Kong: Skull Island is moving ahead in its pre-production phase. The movie will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts and written by John Gatins and Max Borenstein. The cast will feature Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Corey Hawkins as well as Samuel L. Jackson, Jason Mitchell, Toby Kebbell, John C. Reilly and Tom Wilkinson.

The film will delve into the origin story of King Kong and is scheduled for a March 10, 2017 release.

Edwards will come back to the director's chair for the Godzilla sequel that will also be written by Borenstein.
