GODZILLA To Get A Rewrite From Frank Darabont; Trouble Brewing With WB Producers

Deadline report that Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot is to undergo a final draft rewrite by former Walking Dead show-runner Frank Darabont. Also, it seems the split between Legendary and WB producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee may not have been as amicable as we thought..

It now seems likely that production of Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot will begin in March, and according to Deadline, Frank Darbont has been hired by to do a final rewrite on the script that was originally penned by The Seventh Son scribe Max Borenstein. The site also report that Legendary are at war with Dan Lin and Roy Lee, the WB producers that came aboard the project with a rights deal and were dropped - apparently because of a fee dispute. Will this have any effect on production? Who knows, but Deadline reckon thsi will end up in court one way or the other, and as it stands, the movie will be produced by Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, along with Brian Rogers. The film will be directed by Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards, and has been dated for May 16, 2014 release.

I thought Goyer script was great? According to an article from way back anyway. Darabont is doing the re-write?Cool. I love Godzilla, and I can't wait for the reboot.

Is this really the final rewrite? Because they already had a 'final' rewrite on this script. Get it done, Legendary!

Godzilla doesn't need to be an interesting character. He's a [frick]ing monster. Do the zombies on The Walking Dead need to be interesting characters?

Ok, the Darabont news is promising and I'm really pumped for this movie. HUGE Godzilla fan. But if this gets held up in court, well just see my friend Kamen's above gif.

Please don't let this suck...

No one ever thinks of the fans or the people wanting to see these films. It's always about the ol'mighty dollar. Pussheads!
