if Mr Edwards says some news is coming soon then it is coming soon.


Well, yeah, if he had said that. But haven't most of the updates for this been "I'm really excited, and hopefully I'll have something to say really soon"?


*sigh* sorry i am tired today and not reading strait.

Oh no problem, I wasn't trying to be a stickler. I just mean it's really hard to get excited or even take his word when these updates he gives are always "IM REALLY EXCITED AND NEWS WILL COME SOON." It's pretty much all we've gotten other than confirmation that there will be more monsters than just Godzilla in the movie.

From flicks and the city:
Monsters & Godzilla with Gareth Edwards
Duncan Jones did it with Source Code. Rupert Wyatt did it with Rise of the Planet of the Apes.

And now director Gareth Edwards is doing it with Godzilla… making the move from debut indie feature to Hollywood blockbuster, that is.

Check out the video below to see what Gareth – the man behind the successful sci-fi film, Monsters – says about movie inspirations, political undertones, and why he’s not fazed by fans or big budgets.

I just watched eleven minutes of Gareth Edwards on Youtube talking about his thoughts about movie-making to hear, at the end, in response to a direct question his Godzilla project, he finally reveals that his Godzilla project is, in fact, a science fiction movie. :shock:

Whew, I was worried he was going for a comedy. Had enough of that with GINO.

I think he's the long lost brother of Jamie Oliver. Similar look, same vocal cadence.

Memo to anyone involved in this film (which is further evidence D&E were complete morons...)

My 5 year old son drew me a picture of Godzilla. Godzilla was charcoal gray and breathed fire and "won every monster he fought" (his quote)

When watching the Hannah Barbara Godzilla, he said "Why does he sound funny and Godzilla doesn't have laser beam eyes" (He still loves it because it's Godzilla anyway)

When he saw GINO he said "Daaaadddd that's not Godzilla, that's a dinosaur that sounds like Godzilla, just like how my dinosaur flashlight sounds like Godzilla when I turn it on"

So if a 5 year old gets it, let's hope adults can figure it out too...

I say we just hand the reigns of the film over to your kid.

I'd bet it'd be entertaining.

From BC:
Timur Bekmembetov Tells Me About Gareth Edwards’ Robot Movie, Forever
Brendon Connelly wrote:Now that he’s wrapped Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter, which you can currently catch in cinemas across the US, the UK and much of the world, Timur Bekmembetov‘s attention can return to a handful of oft-discussed ongoing projects. One of these is the sequel to Wanted, that he intends to direct, and another is an original sci-fi project that he’s producing for director Gareth Edwards, creator of the rather beautiful Monsters.

Until now, most details of that project have been under wraps, but speaking with Timur recently, I asked him a few questions about the film, and he blessed me with some very interesting answers.

For one thing, the film now has a title. It’s going to be called Forever. The story line takes place in a (largely) post-human future, populated with robots. There will be some human characters, however, including a young boy who, I understand, is one of the two leads. It seems likely to me that the title will refer to the immortal lifespan of the robots, or perhaps the incomprehensible nature of death. It’s an evocative title to mix with these characters, anyhow.

Timur says the project is progressing nicely:
It’s happening. He shot a test film, and we now have to wait until the script is in place. Gareth is meeting with the writer to polish the script. The writer is Dante Harper.

Harper is a rather busy screenwriter with a taste for sci-fi. He adapted the Japanese novel All You Need Is Kill into a screenplay that reportedly sold for $3 million, and is working on a movie version of Isaac Asimov’s Foundation. We’ve yet to see any of his writing work on the big screen, though our first chance, I believe, will be when Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters is released in the spring.

So, somewhere out there is a short test piece showing how Gareth Edwards wants to realise his robot future. I know I’d love to see that.

It’s unclear if Forever will be next for Edwards, or if he’ll first get to work on his Godzilla remake. Either way, this one seems like a passion project for him and I’m sure we’ll be seeing it sooner or later.

All I think this does is confirm Jet Jaguar in the film.

Are we talking what Jackson did to his Kong? I think that'll be nice. Like make it where Godzilla acts mostly like an animal, but at the same time hint at some character. Hmm...

Interesting..... Canada.

Any ideas on where the movie will take place if it's being filmed there?

Yeah, this isn't really an indicator of anything except when production will start (AROUND MAH BIRFDAY). Wasn't Pacific Rim up in Canada pretending to be Japan?

Yeah that's true. I just thought of snow when I read this... I think Godzilla with snow in the background could look great. I'm reading a bit too much into this so I'll just stop.

:lol:

I'm from Vancouver and there is snow here maybe two days a year, if even. If you watched the Winter Olympics 2010 you probably would have heard a lot of jokes about that. We are like Seattle in that it rains most of the year (except for July-Sep).

Glad to hear it's being filmed in my city. I'll keep an eye out for footprints.

Also, MouthForWar is correct, Vancouver is basically Hollywood North. Many studios film their movies here not only because of the climate but because it's cheaper than filming in the states (among other reasons such as film politics etc).

I was about to hop in and say that BEGINNING production in March, it would be somewhat unlikely that there'd be snow around for the shoots...I wouldn't expect a snowy Godzilla movie.
