Christopher Webster [Celluloid 01.05.11] movie news scifi horror



Gareth Edwards, who wrote and directed indie sci-fi movie Monsters, is close to signing a deal to develop and direct Godzilla for Legendary Pictures (Inception, The Dark Knight).

Legendary picked up the rights to Toho Co.'s famous giant lizard 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.


Since Monsters, Edwards’ has won three British Independent Film Awards including nods for "best director," "best achievement in production" and "best technical achievement". It also landed him work with Timur Bekmambetov on a secret sci-fi project that he is writing as a directing vehicle.

So what do you think? IS Edwards treading stagnant waters, or do you think he can breath new life into the franchise?

please no more American remakes. They rarely respect the original work and I actually want to see Godzilla in my Godzilla movie.
