Rumor: Legendary Pictures Developing New Godzilla Movie?!
Another day, another remake! But this isn't just a simple remake, oh no, not at all. Godzilla has been in some 28 movies over 55 years, including Roland Emmerich's recent disaster (no pun intended) of a movie from 1998. But even after all that, he's still coming back for more. Bloody-Disgusting is reporting that Legendary Pictures, the production company responsible for The Dark Knight and Watchmen, is "in early discussions" on another Godzilla movie of sorts. Word is that it will be a reboot, and not a remake or a sequel (which is at least good news I think), but that's all that they know (this is very early). Oh goodness.
Wait a minute, I thought Cloverfield was supposed to be America's new Godzilla replacement, since J.J. Abrams wanted us to have our own famous movie monster? What happened there? I'm reporting this as a rumor because it's the first we've ever heard of it and I just need some kind of official confirmation before we start getting all upset. I'm not really a fan of the classic Japanese Godzilla stuff, and as for Emmerich's Godzilla movie, I didn't really care for it either. Obviously in the hands of Legendary Pictures this could mean some great things, but, let's not jump the gun yet. Because really, do we need another Godzilla?
