Gareth Edwards to direct Godzilla reboot
Gareth Edwards, the writer/director of sci-fi road movie Monsters, is to take the helm for the reboot of the greatest kaijū franchise ever – Godzilla.
Legendary Pictures (Inception, The Dark Knight) and Warner Brothers are co-producing the film, which will presumably feature an initially mismatched couple walking through a post-apocalyptic Japan for two hours before Godzilla cameos in the last thirty seconds.
Following Roland Emmerich’s cringeworthy 1998 contribution to the massive ridiculous lizard’s adventures, Edwards’ multi-BIFA-winning debut has marked him out as just the man to direct (and co-write) the Western world’s latest attempt to match the deathless glory of Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II. D’you know what? We’re quite excited.
