Producers Still Trying to Stomp Godzilla Remake
After facing the likes of King Ghidorah, Rodan, Hedorah, Titanosaurus, and Mothra in every possible guise complete with tiny Japanese fairies, it kind of figures that Godzilla's greatest battle would take place in a courtroom.
Deadline reports producers Roy Lee, Dan Lin, and Doug Davison today launched their own lawsuit in the escalating legal war over the Godzilla reboot by filing a suit against Legendary Pictures in LA Superior Court on Thursday, with the cross-complaint alleging breach of contract among other counts. Seeking a jury trial and millions in damages, this latest legal action also names fellow Godzilla producer and Legendary President/CCO Jon Jashni as a defendant. Legendary’s Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull was not named in the suit. Today’s action comes in response to Legendary’s suit earlier this month to have Lee and Lin and fellow producer Davison removed from the movie with a $25,000 payout.

Godzilla is still on course to begin production in March with the film dated for a May 16, 2014, release.
