‘Godzilla’ Reboot Will Be Grounded In Reality

The team behind Legendary and Warner Bros.’ Godzilla have done an amazing job in keeping their lips sealed tight. No information has come out of the process other than this past Comic-Con’s premiere of a teaser and one-sheet.

The boys at Collider have attempted to get producer Dan Lin to break the silence on the latest reboot that’s to be helmed by Gareth Edwards. He at least gets some info on the production schedule…and a bit more.

We’re planning to film in March,” said Lin. “We are in deep pre-production. Gareth [Edwards] has really mapped out his vision for the movie, you saw the teaser, but Gareth thanks to Thomas Tull’s help he took over a whole stage on the Warner Brothers lot and not only showed the teaser you saw, he had some models built of Godzilla, he had art decorated all over the soundstage, he had pre-vis of some of the big action sequences in the movie. So we’re in deep pre-production and Gareth’s vision of the movie is really exciting it’s a true re-boot of Godzilla. And you saw from the Comic-Con footage it is a grounded, realistic version of Godzilla. What would happen if Godzilla came into our world today?

This seems like the obvious direction to take the franchise, and insiders have told me the difficulty they had in coming up with a new take. It should be interesting to see what the collective minds of David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Max Borenstein (Seventh Son) have come up with. Godzilla will rise from the Ocean May 16, 2014.

    well i’m glad to hear that a movie about a giant lizard attacking the city is going to be “more grounded in reality”, other wise it would just be silly…

    So, basically Cloverfield?

    Anybody who has to use the “It’s grounded in reality” schtick to sell their movie can choke themselves on a turd bullet, because they lack the means to sell it any other ways without resorting to the “Yeah, it’s going by whatever big trend is out nowadays!!!”.

    Hell, if they say “It’s grounded in reality” one more time in any interview, I swear, that’s it. Even if it’s the best movie in the world, I’m not going to go 20 feet near a movie theater that shows it.

    Just as long as I get a fuckin crazy scary awesome godzilla movie :) thats all I need. And I hope it ends with him fighting some monster like Ghidorah then I’ll shit in my pants.

      I forgot to add this is so far away. And also wanted to say when can we see this footage ? Also how will he be created, in the old one he came out of nuclear radiation and all. I can’t wait for this. I have huge faith in this one. Hope it is long too.
