Earthtron is blue Godzilla 1984 after a diet with no spines and a horn. I'm telling ya'!....He's also Kelbeam's be'atch.

What this has to do with Godzilla 2026? I have no idea.

hard to get too excited about anything regarding this film right now...all i'll say on this little tidbit is that if the script is done, great, if not and they are going to look elsewhere, my hope is that they'd start anew...you can always tell when a movie has multiple minds working on the same script because it ends up as a jangled mess.

Until something comes out that is definitive I just sit back and wait...

OT: Love the Earthtron pic. I would love to see more "saurian" monsters get to battle Godzilla, but I guess I'll leave that to Ultraman.

I apologize if this was posted elsewhere.

Go to the bottom.

Anything you can share about your next project? Here is your chance to go crazy!

My next project is a reboot of Godzilla for Legendary Pictures and the folks behind the recent Batman trilogy. Our director is the young and enviably talented Gareth Edwards, whose vision for a fresh but faithful update of this beloved classic will – I feel safe in saying – kick major ass. Wish I could go crazy and tell you more, but I am pretty sure I would then be contractually obligated to be shot.

I don't know how much is really news. I mean he's saying it's kick ass...but he's working on it..why would he say it's trash?

it's a neat little tidbit though, for sure...kinda lets you know that he's working on it and Edwards is still involved, coming up with ideas, and excited about the project.

Its good to hear that everyone is still excited about the project. Call me naive, but I honestly think its taking so long because they are really trying to find something that works. Godzilla IS a pretty tough nut to crack for a reboot, especially for an American audience.

Warner Bros. don't want another Green Lantern on their hands and LP don't want to be strapped with another Jonah Hex or Sucker Punch level bomb. And unlike Superman, they don't have a crazy deadline to meet in order to retain the rights to the character.

There is so much cinematic garbage in that sentence :lol:

Yeah, I guess enthusiasm is good, but we hear so little about this project so often I don't feel much excitement by this tidbit.

Same here to be honest, but I'm not off put by my lack of excitement. I don't expect to be genuinely excited about anything until they officially enter pre-production.

I'm pretty much with you on this one. I ain't off put yet and don't plan to be anytime soon either. :wink:

GODZILLA EXCLUSIVE Interview with Writer Max Borenstein

THR:
'Godzilla' Writer on Monster Hit: 'We Aimed as High As We Could' (Q&A)
Max Borenstein defends the decision not to show the film's giant star until well into the film, saying he took a page from the "Jaws" playbook: "That movie becomes incredibly suspenseful and perhaps it's the reason 'Jaws 2' becomes a lot less interesting."

I think he kind of misses the point there, the Jaws sequels didn't work because they showed their sharks more, they were just bad movies with none of the relatable or developed characters of the original. Godzilla is the same but different. Like any good movie you need an impressive story populated by interesting characters, but part of the reason you watch a giant monster movie is to see these forces of nature. It's not like Jaws or Alien where what you don't see is more scary or suspenseful, it's awe-inspiring because these beings exist in the first place. You can't hide a mountain, especially one made of flesh rampaging through a city or fighting another like it.

I agree. Jaws II's problem isn't that it showed more of the shark, it's because it was a tired retread of the first movie just with more (and more explicit) shark attacks. What he SHOULD be doing is looking at successful creature feature sequels, like Aliens or (perhaps a stretch) Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
