Legendary Pictures is rebooting GODZILLA with Gareth Edwards (Monsters) to direct and David Goyer (Batman Begins) is writing the screenplay. But will the powerful monster be CGI or a man in a rubber suit?
Last time Godzilla got the Hollywood treatment was in 1998 when Roland Emmerich (Independence Day) and SONY created a film that hardly resembled anything that fans were accustomed to. The star, Godzilla looked nothing like he usually does. Is as though they took the name Godzilla and slapped a Jurassic Park look to the film.
As for the reboot that Legendary Pictures is working on, infamouskidd’s source is reporting that creature sculptor, Hector Arce’s design of Godzilla is the blueprint. Even more exciting is that Legendary is rumored to be going with a rubber suited Godzilla instead of all CGI creation. How great is that?
Our source in the know on the new look of Godzilla sent us off in the direction of Hector A. Arce, a creature/fantasy sculptor, who we

The director of Monsters, Gareth Edwards was chosen to direct an American reboot for the famed Japanese monster movie series Godzilla. Now he talks a little bit more about the project and why it must be done right…
For a while now another Godzilla movie has been talked about. After rumors of directors like Guillermo Del Toro helming the project. But news later broke that the director of Monsters Gareth Edwards would be directing the reboot to the incredibly popular movie franchise.
After the latest American Godzilla starring Mathew Broderick failed fans were hessitant about another American made Godzilla movie. Edwards agrees with fans that this franchise must be done the right way:
“I’m a big fan,”Edwards tells Shock, palpably choosing his words wisely when it comes to talking about his latest endeavor. “I guess I will say I’m highly aware – and everyone involved is incredibly aware – of everyone’s opinions on what this film has to do and what it has to be. And no one will do anything but the right thing. Without addressing anything specific, everyone knows how important is to get it right.”
Edwards is not allowed to talk about the script that is being written but did reveal he will not be writing it.
Edwards also talked about how he got acquainted with the franchise:
“My earliest memories was channel 4, they showed them every Friday night. As a kid I wasn’t quite sure about the dubbing, the English-dubbed versions. They threw me for a bit. I love science fiction and, well I call them B movies but they’re not, but I love ’60s and ’70s sci-fi. But these would come on and be dubbed and it would take my kid brain to adjust to the dubbing. It took me some time to get through that.”

Recently Latino Review reported that he was offered the chance to direct the new Godzilla reboot. However, according to HitFix, Del Toro says that’s not exactly true.
That was Del Toros first reaction according to Drew McWeeny, over at HitFix. He reports he caught up with Director Guillermo Del Toro and asked him about recent rumors that he’s been tapped to helm Legendary Pictures new Godzilla reboot. As reported yesterday by Latino Review.
This is what the director had to say, once the rumor was explained to him.
“I am not involved in ‘Godzilla’ at all,” Guillermo replied “I haven’t read it or plan to read it. Nor have I been approached to direct it.”
Drew goes on to say.
That sounds pretty definitive to me. I’ve known Guilermo a long time, and he’s not the sort of guy to shy away from geeking out about this or that potential project. He’s a big monster fan, and I’m sure if he was thinking about taking on the King of the Monsters, he’d be happy to share some of that enthusiasm.
