New Story Details For Legendary Pictures' GODZILLA Reboot Emerge
With production beginning this March, some new details on Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot have emerged, revealing that it's "way different" from the original movies and that we can expect more than one giant monster will be featured.
This week has seen quite a bit of news related to Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' reboot of the Godzilla franchise, which will begin filming in March. Frank Darabont (The Walking Dead, The Shawshank Redemption) was brought on board to finalize the script, which was previously worked on by Iron Man 3's Drew Pearce and The Dark Knight's David S. Goyer, among others. Then, it was confirmed that two of the film's producers left the project. Additionally, the studio is reportedly eying Henry Cavill (Man Of Steel), Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softly) and Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class) to take the lead role after Joseph Gordon-Levitt (The Dark Knight Rises) turned down the offer. Now, via Chud, we have some potential story details for Godzilla. According to the site's source, WB's promotional arm just wrapped a webinar on their upcoming slate, and that the following details for director Gareth Edwards' "realistic" take on the legendary monster were "100% confirmed" and in the movie's pre-Darabont script.
-The film will feature more than one monster, confirming that two new monsters will also be wreaking havoc – this in addition to the big green guy.
-Warner Bros. made it clear that their interpretation of the material “follows the story of a solider” and is “way different” than the Toho Godzilla films.
Very interesting. We previously heard that Godzilla will be taking on one giant monster in the film, but it looks like we can now expect him to battle two. Which creatures would you like to see Gojira fight in his next big screen outing? Many thanks to CBM's @Marvel_Freshman for the heads up.
Godzilla is set to invade theaters May 16th, 2014 in 3D.
