Japan’s favorite giant green monster could be heading to San Diego very, very soon.
Latino Review has heard from their sources that Legendary Pictures is bringing their upcoming “Godzilla” movie to Comic-Con this year. The production company has already said their panel will include Guillermo del Toro’s upcoming “Pacific Rim,” so Godzilla should feel right at home there.
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about Gareth Edwards’ take on the classic kaiju. Max Bornstein is currently re-writing David Goyer’s script, but it doesn’t seem like the movie has gone into production yet. It’s unclear what—if anything—Edwards will be able to bring to Hall H, but hopefully he’s got some concept art or something to tease what his vision of the project will be.
In an interview back in February 2011, Edwards said he was very aware of the franchise weight he was taking onto his shoulders with “Godzilla.”
“I guess I will say I’m highly aware—and everyone involved is incredibly aware—of everyone’s opinions on what this film has to do and what it has to be,” he said. “And no one will do anything but the right thing. Without addressing anything specific, everyone knows how important is to get it right.”
Edwards’ only feature film credit to date is 2010’s “Monsters,” and that’s largely what made him an easy pick to direct this movie. He proved he could make a big monster movie on a (relatively) tiny budget, and that might be exactly what the “Godzilla” franchise needs.
