Its been a very busy week for news of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot, and the film hasn’t even begun filming yet!
More news has made its way on-line by way of CHUD who have some tiny, but exciting details on the films plot. Reportedly, CHUD got access to a web-based seminar where people from Warner Brothers promotional group got together, and CHUD learned that the film is set to feature not just Godzilla, but two monsters for the beast to face!
Anyone who knows anything about Godzilla will recall his various face-off’s with other monsters like King Kong and Mothra, so I imagine fans were hoping for a good bit of monster battles here, but the question is: just who will ‘The King of Monsters’ face? Well, unfortunately that is not known, but CHUD learned that there will be two brand new monsters in the film which have never been seen before.
There is also some hints at the films plot, and it would seem that the plan is to break tradition from the classic Toho Godzilla films. In Edwards’ reboot, the film will “follow the story of a soldier”, and my guess is the names released earlier this week (Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Henry Cavill, Scoot McNairy, Caleb Landry Jones) is who Legendary and Edwards are looking at for the role.
Things are also hotting up with the fall out between Legendary and former producers on the film, Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison. Legendary have filed a lawsuit to have them removed from the sequel and to stop a potential temporary restraining order by them against the film’s production.
Godzilla will be filming in Vancouver and Hawaii under the working title Nautilus from 14th March, and is expected to arrive in cinemas May 16th 2014.
