Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind.
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. READ MORE
55 years and 28 movies later, the Japanese monster Godzilla is looking to make his return to big screens everywhere. Making his first appearance in 1954 (Gojira) Godzilla is a giant monster that lives in the sea that comes from the ocean to feed on mankind. Bloody Disgusting has learned exclusively that Legendary Pictures is looking to do another major movie with the iconic horror monster (they are in early discussions), although there are NO details at this point other than this should be a reboot. In 1998, TriStar Pictures produced a remake set in New York City, directed by Roland Emmerich and starring Matthew Broderick. In recent interviews for 2012 Emmerich has said that he’s not interested in sequels (even though all of his disaster movies are basically the same). More details as they come in.
