It’s kind of amazing the amount of buzz surrounding Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla reboot, and somehow there’s literally zero information about it. The Coventry Telegraph’s Geek Files is one of the first to get director Gareth Edwards to talk, and here’s what he spilled:
“I’ve never worked this hard, this long and been this emotionally involved in something that’s lasted only a few seconds since the time I lost my virginity! But the reaction has been amazing and I can’t wait for the fans to see our final product.” he told the site.
“I’ve always been interested in Godzilla and the ideas around him. I really wanted to see another Godzilla film and jumped at the opportunity. My main idea was to imagine ‘If this really happened, what would it be like?’ I want to take a grounded, realistic approach to a Godzilla film.
“Everyone warns you about working for Hollywood and how you can get treated in a certain way but my experience has been the polar opposite. Thomas Tull (founder of Legendary) has been very supportive.”
What we’ve learned is that he’s aiming for a realistic approach, so don’t expect to see a bunch of Godzilla babies running around Madison Square Garden. Godzilla is to begin casting soon for a May 16, 2014 release.
