For a $200,000 movie, Monsters has created quite a trajectory for its director and star. After Gareth Edwards got the job directing Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla, star Scoot McNairy has landed a lead alongside Brad Pitt and a great supporting cast in the Andrew Dominik-directed Cogan’s Trade. He’s in contention for a lead in the Ridley Scott-directed Prometheus, and is circling the role of Josh Speed in the Timur Bekmambetov-directed Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, both at Fox. He’s repped by ICM and The Group Management.
