Legendary Pictures Godzilla News

Producer Brian Rogers talked to “zennie62” about the in-production Legendary Pictures “re-boot” of Godzilla.

The key points are:

  1. We’re looking at a 2012 release.
  2. Godzilla will be created using CGI. Otherwise the film is live action.
  3. Godzilla will fight another monster or even monsters.
  4. They want this Godzilla to be true to the original Japanese Godzilla, in both appearance and general narrative approach.
  5. They want to “re-boot” Godzilla the way they re-booted Batman in Batman Begins — not necessarily in a technical sense (violent camera editing, dark ambiance, etc.), but in a way that keeps it faithful to the iconic character while tweaking it for modern audiences.
  6. Reading between the lines, I don’t think the image of Godzilla that appeared on t-shirts released at Comic-Con is the production’s definitive version of the Big G — though it may very well reflect the effect they’ll be going for. The other one that was doing the rounds bears no relation to Legendary’s design at all.

Take a listen:
