Now here’s a kick-ass news item to close out the day! The second American made Godzilla film finally has a director! One who is no stranger to giant sized beasties!
According to The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog Gareth Edwards, the British filmmaker who wrote and directed indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is closing a deal to develop and direct Godzilla for Legendary Pictures, the company that helped produce blockbusters such as Inception and The Dark Knight.
Big G has been around since the Fifties and has appeared in nearly thirty movies since his debut in 1954 so here’s hoping this film won’t drop the ball like the last American version did. Sometimes I still wake up screaming with visions of iguana-chickens (which slightly resemble Jay Leno) running through my head while hundreds of people with fake New York accents scream at the top of their lungs.
If this thing doesn’t breathe fire, I’m just going to start randomly punch people in the throat.
