Our friends over at Bloody Disgusting stumbled upon some interesting news this morning. According to their sources, Legendary Pictures is gearing up to resurrect Japan's most famous giant monster Godzilla.
Details are sketchy, though it seems early discussions have begun. One thing that seems certain is that this will not be a sequel to Roland Emmerich's 1998 Godzilla, which has been mocked relentlessly by its Japanese counterparts in recent films such as Godzilla: Final Wars. It's safe to say that we are looking at what those in the industry like to call a "reboot".
While this news is still fresh and out of the box, there's no word on exactly what we can expect. Bloody Disgusting is on the case, though. And we will let you know when we hear more from them.
My own words -
Legendary pictures has made some great films, including the resurrection of batman to movie theaters. If they are resurrecting Godzilla with honor and dignity to the original Japanese films, I'd definitely go see it. It would definitely make up for that piece of shit that was released in 1998.
That film's monster was a piece of crap as well. A giant lizard that burps hot air that destroys cars, is a coward, hermaphrodite, and is easily killed! But before that monster design was approved, the late Stan Winston made a design of the monster that was more respectable to his Japanese counterpart. He even sculpted this model.
Now THAT is how you do Godzilla justice for an American audience! If Legendary pictures DOES make a Godzilla film, he better look like that!!
