IRON MAN 3 Scribe Drew Pearce To Rewrite GODZILLA Reboot
With Legendary Pictures' reboot of the Godzilla film franchise now set for a summer 2014 release, Iron Man 3 screenwriter Drew Pearce has been brought on board to give the script a final polish before the casting process begins. Read on for more details.
Recently, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures announced that their much anticipated Godzilla reboot will be hitting theaters May 16th, 2014 (expectedly in 3D). The film, which will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters), debuted a test reel at San Diego Comic-Con this summer, which led to anticipation reaching a new high. Now, Variety reports that screenwriter Drew Pearce - who recently co-wrote Iron Man 3 for Marvel Studios - has been hired to pen a final rewrite of the script. The casting process is expected to begin in four weeks, and sources say that the last minute rewrite is to age the characters to match the actors that are being targeted (there are reportedly no problems with the script). David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) previously worked on the script. Pearce is also working on the script for Warner Bros.' third Sherlock Holmes movie.
