It was.

Man of Steel is already written, I believe, so he's putting most of his focus on Godzilla now.


This is correct. Superman is actually FILMING right now. The script is done. That report says that he's "at work on the set of Man of Steel." so maybe Zack Snyder just has him on the set to do a little fine tuning with the script... still, this has nothing to do with Godzilla and I can't imagine it effecting Godzilla in any way.

Besides, I was under the assumption that his first draft of Godzilla was done and Toho were impressed by it. So if that's true, and if the movie has a 2014 release date, I don't see how him doing some polish work on Superman means... well, anything. He should have plenty of time to tune and polish the Godzilla script up before Legendary wants to start filming.

...eh, i gotta be honest, i kinda draw a bit of a blurry line on the word "sci-fi" because i think most people, when they hear "sci-fi" think, space travel, ufos, lazers, giant robots, mad scientists, time travel, etc...and i think in this case especially, it's just a case of the director saying they aren't gonna go crazy (that's Pacific Rim's job) and they aren't gonna waste our time worrying about origins and wacky Plan Z's and such...

EDIT: btw, Pacific Rim job...wow... :lol:

That is sci-fi. I know it's the guy's way of saying that, but he should just stop with grounded and realistic, because otherwise it's as though he doesn't understand what the genre of sci-fi entails.

Pearce to pen 'Godzilla' re-write - 'Iron Man 3' scribe will age up characters for Legendary pic
Justin Kroll wrote:With buzz of the project rising, Legendary has brought in "Iron Man 3" scribe Drew Pearce to do a rewrite on "Godzilla" before it gets the casting process under way.

"Godzilla" has gained a lot of momentum after Legendary previewed a short test reel of the pic at Comic-Con, and sources tell Variety that Pearce is now being brought in to do a four-week polish on the script.

Gareth Edwards is helming the pic. Legendary's Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce, along with Roy Lee, Dan Lin and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher will serve as executive producers alongside Doug Davison, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.

Previous drafts were penned by David Callahan, who wrote the original draft, as well as David Goyer and Max Borenstein. Sources add that the polish isn't being done because Legendary has any major problems with the script; it wants to age up the characters so that they fit the prototype of the actors they would like to target.

Besides "Iron Man 3," the WME-repped Pearce is also working on the script for WB's "Sherlock Holmes 3."

George Romero said Night of the Living Dead wasn't a horror film and I think we all knew what he meant and didn't take it totally out of context and call him an ignoramus for it.

Ishiro Honda wrote:"The three of us agreed we should tackle the film earnestly, as if it were a factual subject... We must think of it as real, not just a ridiculous monster created by bombs. That would give the film a realistic feeling."



Honestly, what a dumb thing to even analyze. We all know what these guys mean.

i'd think things like this would put an end to it, but apparently, i'd be wrong...

David S. Goyer Talks His Involvement with GODZILLA and THE COUNT OF MONTE CRISTO
Adam Chitwood wrote:Director Gareth Edwards’ new take on Godzilla is currently in production in Vancouver, but the project went through a number of screenwriters on the road to filming. Goyer did some work on the script in addition to Frank Darabont, Max Bornstein, and David Callaham, and Steve asked the scribe about his involvement with the film:
“[I was involved with Godzilla] a little bit. I mean I did three or four weeks of work on Godzilla, it wasn’t a page-one rewrite or anything like that. The term is ‘script doctoring,’ is what I did on it.”

The scribe went on to talk about how his busy schedule didn’t allow him much time to devote to the monster pic:
“I did jump at the chance [to do it] but one of the reasons why I only did three weeks was because I was very busy. The good news/bad news about where I’m at in my career now is I get offered a lot of cool things and I can’t always work on them because my dance card’s often full. I’ve definitely had to—there’ve been some ones that have gotten away that I wish I could’ve worked on.”

So, honestly sounds like Goyer probably just proofread the script.
