Yay! "Monsters" Director to Breathe Fire On "Godzilla" Reboot! 



I am so excited to report that Gareth Edwards, the guy behind the brilliant indie sci-fi flick "Monsters," is going to direct another monster, and that, of course, is "Godzilla." (I picked "Monsters" as one of the best films of 2010, check out my list right here)

As we told you last March, Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures, the studios behind "Inception" and "The Dark Knight" are teaming up to reboot the monster of all monster flicks "Godzilla." (See "Godzilla" Reboot in the Works From "The Dark Knight" Studios)

Legendary has acquired the rights to develop and produce a new feature based on the iconic Toho Co. character. Warner Bros. will co-produce, co-finance and distribute through its deal with Legendary.

The last time "Godzilla" stomped onto the big-screen was the horrible 1998 film from Roland Emmerich and Dean Devlin. In order to erase that film from our memories, Toho produced "Godzilla 2000" the following year to no avail.

But now, with Edwards helming the project, I strongly believe the director will give us a fresh take on our favorite fire-breathing monster!
