Per Variety, Legendary Pictures, makers of Batman Begins, 300, The Dark Knight, Trick 'r Treat, and Watchmen,  has obtained the rights to Godzilla, and plan on yet another American version of the Japanese monster.    Although the project is still in the very early stages, and a Director hasn't even been attatched to the film,  the Variety article gives me some hope that Legendary will try to remain faithful to the classic Japanese version of the Big G, instead of the almost universally despised Roland Emmerich Zilla that hit the screen in 1998.


Quote from: Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary
Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise.  Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has.

Godzilla needs to be a Colossus, not a velociraptor.  Let it be so.

Godzilla's new look revealed in concept art from Comic-con.   Per Joblo.net, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are aiming for a 2012 release, although no director has been attached to the project yet.

Yeah, I'd say that it at least looks like a modern Godzilla.  Much more so than 'Zilla '98.

That would be because you are stupid.

Godzilla: Final Wars remains one of the best of the latest breed of films. Monumentally stupid and epic amounts of fun. And for the record, if you ever get a chance to watch the uncut version of the original "Gojira" you'll be stunned at how genuinely sad it is. Totally different than any of the films that followed.

on another Godzilla note,who remembers the Hanna-Barbera cartoon?

they used to call him to help them out,and he would come from the depths of the ocean,and then whenever it showed him next the ocean always only came up to Godzilla's ankles (or maybe his knees)icon_lol

A rubber suit could still work like it did it in the more recent Gamera trilogy. I'd much prefer it over bad or even mediocre CGI

They do mention in the original interview that began this thread that he will have a monster opponent this time around.  The original concept of "Godzilla vs. Tax Code 33B!" didn't test well...

It better not suck this time.  I see that Gareth Edwards was the writer/director of Monsters, which had some good elements but overall didn't really hold up for me.  Odd that there seems to be no info on IMDB for this, considering the thread is a couple years old.  I imagine they must have started over multiple times.

Plus it  has to compete with Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim.  And I also hold out hope for Spielberg's Robopacalypse and the long-rumored Monsterpocalypse that Dreamworks optioned (though is probably being buried).

Quote
Featuring spectacular creatures, thrilling action, epic battles and a legendary monster, Godzilla provides the backbone for a monstrous merchandise offering for fans of all ages and enables compelling cross-category opportunities across mass and specialty retailers."We believe that our new theatrical film brings a bold new take on Godzilla that will energize and mobilize fans on a worldwide basis and like never before," said Joel Chiodi, Executive Vice President, Theatrical Marketing, Legendary Entertainment.
