Godzilla Reboot from Director of “Monsters” (You know that film made for only 500k)

It looks set that British Indie Filmmaker Gareth Edwards who wrote and directed the film Monsters and made it on such a meager budget will be developing and directing the reboot of Godzilla. Edward’s Monsters was nominated for 4 Independent British Film Awards and came away winning 3.

Gareth Edwards, the British filmmaker who wrote and directed indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is closing a deal to develop and direct the creature feature for Legendary Pictures, the company that co-produced blockbusters such as Inception and The Dark Knight.

Warner Bros. will co-produce, co-finance and distribute per its deal with Legendary. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing along with Dan Lin, Roy Lee, and Brian Rogers.

Legendary picked up the rights to the giant lizard from Japan’s Toho Co. in March 2010. It was around that time that Edwards’Monsters made its premiere at SXSW (where WME quickly signed him for representation) before moving on to the Toronto International Film Festival and a U.S. release by Magnet Releasing in October.

Edwards will now work with a new yet-to-hired writer on the script. (David Callaham was the original writer.)
