Not too long ago, director Adam Wingard updated the status of the live-action ThunderCats movie, stating that it was a top priority for him after wrapping up work on Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire.

However, it seems that the Thundercats movie is not his 'only' priority, as Wingard acknowledged that he's still working on the Face/Off reboot. He also admitted that it's very likely that he could be offered another MonsterVerse film if Godzilla x Kong takes off at the box office.

Deadline caught up Wingard at the premiere for The New Empire, where he stated that, "It's been full steam ahead recently with ThunderCats and Face/Off recently, in terms of the script."

"We won't know [if that's my next project] until they get to the next phase, but they're [moving] along really well and the scripts are really amazing. I'm so excited about what they could possibly be."

"And there's [also the question] of what's going to happen with this series and where things go from here. So, I'm kind of open and keeping my options open...we'll see."

The good news for Wingard is that the MonsterVerse films and ThunderCats are both Warner Bros. projects so he won't anger the studio if he picks either of these as his next project.

However, the Face/Off sequel is currently setup at Paramount Pictures and it will probably take some crafty scheduling to squeeze in the action-thriller if WB wants to move forward with one of the other projects.

Speaking to io9 not that long ago about ThunderCats, Wingard stated, "Simon [Barrett] and I are still actively working on the script. We finished our last draft basically right when I was going into production on this movie and we just had to put everything on hold. [But] right now we’re actively working on it again. So whether that means that’s the next thing I do or [not], I’m not sure. But it’s definitely one of the top priorities I have right now in terms of working on a script.

In that same interview, Wingard revealed that work on Face/Off was not that far along.

He shared, "Almost in the middle of production [on Godzilla x Kong: The New Empire], we were finishing our draft of the script and because both of us were too busy working on other things there was a plan to do a rewrite, and we picked a writer to work on it."

"And then the writers’ strike happened so that delayed things. Right now that’s still inactive, so I think the plan with that one will be that writer will continue working, and whenever that draft is done, Simon and I will get it back and we’ll take another crack at it."
