"Monsters" Director to Reboot" Godzilla"

Posted: January 5th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"Monsters" Director to Reboot" Godzilla"Submit Comment
Gareth Edwards, the British filmmaker who wrote and directed the independent sci-fi film "Monsters," has signed on to direct Warner Bros' upcoming "Godzilla" reboot.

Legendary Pictures picked up the rights to the property from Japan's Toho Company in March 2010. It was around that time that Edwards' "Monsters" made its premiere at SXSW (where WME agency quickly signed him for representation) before moving on to the Toronto International Film Festival and a US release by Magnet Releasing in October.

Edwards will now work on "Godzilla" with a new yet-to-hired writer on the script. David Callaham (The Expendables, Doom) was the original writer.

Havn't seen "Monsters" but hear good things about it, so if the studio allow the him do it his way this good be a good "Godzilla" movie.

Again, I know i'm in the Minority here but I didn't mind the Roland Emmerich Godzilla movie.

Yet to see Monsters heard mixed things though...

It would be more new worthy to post articles saying "Director to make an original movie" Every other article lately is "reboot this" Reboot that". Hollywood needs to stop embrassing themselves.

Monsters was overrated. The best thing about it was the sets and those were the result of an actual natural disaster. Other than that the film, the acting, and creature design were pretty boring. Hopefully Edwards doesn't do the same thing to Zilla.

Seriously, leave Godzilla to the Japanese.

They know what works and we don't (with Godzilla).

Roland Emmerich and that .... giant iguana ... that they had play a FEMALE Godzilla proved that.
