Godzilla Remake Confirmed

Update! : Variety has confirmed Bloody Disgusting’s scoop (From last August) regarding Legendary Pictures developing a new “Godzilla” movie. Legendary will co-produce and co-finance with Warners.

Here’s the Original Story…

There’s a fire-breathing monster headed towards Hollywood and Vine… and it ain’t a Weinstein.

Bloody Disgusting reports that a new “Godzilla” picture is in the works. Legendary Pictures, the crowd behind superhero jaunts “Watchmen” and ‘The Dark Knight”, are reportedly behind the Jurassic creature’s Tinseltown resurgence. There’s no other details at this stage.

The last time Hollywood tackled the Japanese Lizard things didn’t work out so well. 1998’s “Godzilla”, starring Matthew Broderick, and directed by Roland Emmerich, wasn’t just slammed by fans, it was a box office disappointment to boot. Tri Star had originally hoped it’d be the first chapter in a new franchise (hence the final sequence of the first film – with Godzilla’s eggs hatching at Madison Square Gardens).

More on this as it comes to hand…
