Nong played a key role in relaunching yet another franchise, Godzilla, for the franchise-rich studio. The summer 2014 reboot, which was co-produced and co-financed by Legendary, dwarfed its predecessor, the 1998 Roland Emmerich version, with a monstrous $525 million worldwide haul, and a sequel already is in the works for 2018. The Yale alum also shepherded 300: Rise of an Empire, which earned $331 million worldwide despite a no-name cast. Looking ahead, the California native, who's currently in wedding-planning mode, is particularly excited about a project she championed: Nancy Meyers' The Intern, which teams Anne Hathaway and Robert De Niro and is due out Sept. 25, 2015. Nong's fingerprints can be found all over Warners' development slate, too, including on the Steve Carell Looney Tunes spinoff Acme and the Chris Weitz-helmed postapocalyptic YA film The Young World. Further out, she's overseeing Stephen King's The Stand, with Fault in Our Stars director Josh Boone attached; and American Blood, which has Bradley Cooper producing and attached to star.
