Godzilla Sequel Already in the Works

Source: ComingSoon

May 18, 2014

Following a huge first weekend at the box office for Godzilla, Warner Bros. president of domestic distribution Dan Fellman revealed today that a sequel is already in the works.

Legendary Pictures, which put up 75% of the money to make the film (Warner Bros. took care of the rest), is now Universal Pictures' partner, but Legendary and Warner Bros. will team on the sequel again. It is assumed that director Gareth Edwards would return to direct.

Made for about $160 million, the film earned an impressive $196.2 million worldwide this weekend, with $93.2 million of that coming from the domestic box office and $103 million from international markets.

Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Sally Hawkins, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. Edwards from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, story by David Callaham. Thomas Tull produced the film, along with Jon Jashni, Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Patricia Whitcher and Alex Garcia served as executive producers, alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.

Legendary Confirms Gareth Edwards Still Attached to Godzilla Sequel

SuperHeroHype

May 22, 2014

The big news of the day is that Godzilla helmer Gareth Edwards will be directing a mystery Star Wars film for release on December 16, 2016. What does that mean, though, for another big screen adventure with the King of Monsters? ShockTillYouDrop.com has an update straight from Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull.

“Gareth's filmmaking talent makes him one of his generation's most creative and visionary directors,” says Tull. “The plan has always been for Gareth to direct a different film before we started on another 'Godzilla,' but who knew it would be a 'Star Wars' installment? We have a great plan in store for 'Godzilla' fans and I am looking forward to seeing Gareth’s imprint on the 'Star Wars' universe.”

The Hollywood Reporter goes on to say that Edwards is attached not only for a Godzilla sequel, but for a full Godzilla trilogy.

Godzilla 2 Delayed, Godzilla vs King Kong Dated

SuperHeroHype

May 10, 2016

There has been a schedule shift today for the future of Legendary and Warner Bros. Pictures’ cinematic Kaijuniverse as Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla 2, originally planned for release on June 8, 2018, will now arrive nine months later on March 22, 2019. Godzilla vs Kong will then follow on May 29, 2020. The latter film was always intended for a 2020 release and it is now the first major release to claim that date. In fact, the only other film currently dated for May 2020 is a mystery Marvel Studios project set to arrive May 1. Godzilla 2 will open opposite Paramount Pictures‘ animated feature, Amusement Park. The move also gets Godzilla 2 out of the path of a sixth Transformers feature, believed to be the planned Bumblebee spinoff.

Moviegoers will next have an opportunity to visit the cinematic world of Godzilla and Kong with the March 10, 2017 release of director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island. 2018 won’t be entirely without giant monsters, too, as Legendary and Universal Pictures‘ Pacific Rim 2 is slated to arrive in theaters December 31, 2018.

Warner Bros. also slightly shifted the release of one of their mystery DC Comics feature films. Originally set for release on June 19, 2020 (the same date as a mystery Pixar release), the DC film will now arrive in theaters July 24, 2020. It has been highly speculated that the DC project in question is Green Lantern Corps, but that has not been officially confirmed by the studio at this time.

One final addition to the upcoming Warner Bros. schedule places a mystery event film for release on December 25, 2018. There is currently a mystery live-action Disney film set for release that same day.

Gareth Edwards Exits Godzilla 2

SuperHeroHype

May 13, 2016

Following a schedule shift earlier this week that moved Legendary and Warner Bros. Pictures’ Godzilla 2 from 2018 to 2019, comes word, via Deadline, that the project has lost its director. Gareth Edwards was planning to return for the followup to his 2014 film but has, reportedly, now amicably exited the budding cinematic Kaijuniverse to pursue his own original projects. As revealed earlier this week, Godzilla 2 will arrive on the big screen March 22, 2019 and will pave the way for Godzilla vs Kong on May 29, 2020. Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island will hit first, however, debuting March 10, 2017.

Details on Godzilla 2 are relatively few, although a presentation at last year’s Comic-Con International reiterated that the next chapter should introduce classic Toho monsters like King Ghidorah, Mothra, and Rodan.

“Audiences really responded to ‘Godzilla,'” said producer Thomas Tull when Godzilla vs Kong was officially announced last year. “Today, I’m excited to reveal that film was only the beginning of an epic new entertainment universe. As a lifelong fan of these characters, I’ve always wanted to see the ultimate showdown, and today we’re pleased to be announcing that and more.”

Gareth Edwards latest film, meanwhile, brings him to a galaxy far, far away. Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, an immediate prequel to A New Hope, tells the story of resistance fighters who have united to steal plans to the dreaded Death Star. Felicity Jones leads the cast of the film alongside Diego Luna, Ben Mendelsohn, Donnie Yen, Jiang Wen, Forest Whitaker, Mads Mikkelsen, Alan Tudyk and Riz Ahmed. Look for it to hit the big screen December 16, 2016.
