Legendary Gets ‘Godzilla’-sized Pitch

Contrary to my predictions, Monsters director Gareth Edwards is still attached to direct a reboot of Godzilla for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, and there’s been plenty of progress to report.

Heat Vision broke the news this evening that Max Borenstein has landed the enormous task of bringing the Japanese green lizard back to theaters. David Goyer (The Dark Knight) had previously worked on the script.

My inside sources tell me that is hasn’t been an easy task finding a writer to crack the code. How do you keep the integrity of the “man in a rubber suit” lore while modernizing it? It’s not an easy concept to pitch. Therefore, Borenstein must have something special up his sleeve. What would you guys like to see?

Borenstein rewrote Legendary’s supernatural fantasy The Seventh Son. Based on the Joseph Delaney YA book, it’s due to go into production with Jeff Bridges, Julianne Moore and Ben Barnes attached to star.
