Because the Roland Emmerich and Dean Deviln 1998 Godzilla remake starring Matthew Broderick was such a wonderful idea, Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are teaming up yet again to bring another American-ized version of the big lizard to the big screen. Legendary has tapped Gareth Edwards, director of the low-budget but high-concept Monsters to direct the film.

*Sigh* When will Hollywood ever learn? People don’t want to see a bloated, big-budget, star-packed, merchandising machine version of Godzilla with a completely re-designed creature; they want to see the Godzilla they know and love – a guy in a goofy rubber suit stomping on a cardboard Tokyo while other equally goofy monsters try to punch the shit out of him!

About Jeff Carter

Jeff began his path towards Geek destiny at the age of four, at a drive-in screening of Star Wars. Since then, he's had a love affair with all things nerdy. In the mid to late 90's, Jeff was a staff writer for EchoStation.Com, interviewing Star Wars heavyweights like Timothy Zahn and Drew Struzan. He then went on to review films and write editorial pieces for several blogs in the mid 2000's, wrote and co-created a webcomic strip that ran from 2007-2010, and is currently co-founder of Dead Henchmen Productions, an independent film company based in New England.
