Monsters director Gareth Edward is working on giving us a new, and hopefully better, American version of Godzilla. He showed some footage at SDCC this year and got a very enthusiastic response from the audience.
So, what has it been like for Edwards to work on this production? Fortunately, Coventry Telegraph’s The Geek Files was able to pin down the director and ask him just that:
“I’ve never worked this hard, this long and been this emotionally involved in something that’s lasted only a few seconds since the time I lost my virginity! But the reaction has been amazing and I can’t wait for the fans to see our final product.
“I’ve always been interested in Godzilla and the ideas around him. I really wanted to see another Godzilla film and jumped at the opportunity. My main idea was to imagine ‘If this really happened, what would it be like?’ I want to take a grounded, realistic approach to a Godzilla film.
“Everyone warns you about working for Hollywood and how you can get treated in a certain way but my experience has been the polar opposite. Thomas Tull (founder of Legendary) has been very supportive.”
Godzilla hits theatres May 16, 2014.
