Godzilla Burns Up a New Writer; Casting to Begin Soon
Some quick news coming in for Legendary's new version of Godzilla... Variety reports that Legendary has brought in Iron Man 3 and Sherlock Holmes 3 scribe Drew Pearce to do a rewrite on Godzilla before it gets the casting process under way.
Godzilla has gained a lot of momentum after Legendary previewed a short test reel of the pic at the San Diego Comic-Con this past July, and sources tell the site that Pearce is now being brought in to do a four-week polish on the script.
Monsters director Gareth Edwards is still helming the film, with Roy Lee, Dan Lin, Jon Jashni, Thomas Tull and Brian Rogers producing.
Previous drafts were penned by David Callahan, who wrote the original draft, as well as David Goyer and Max Borenstein. Sources add that the polish isn’t being done because Legendary has any major problems with the script; it wants to age up the characters so that they fit the prototype of the actors they would like to target.
