Why? We have twenty-nine films already, most of which are crap anyway. Why taint Godzilla's legacy any further?

Most? Not really. But a decent handful? Somewhat true, they aren't as solid as expected. I wouldn't call them "crap" though, just not very solid.
I still hope and want this film to keep going and see the light of day.

Looking at things now, I have to say that I haven't noticed the time that has flown by. The last scrap of informing news was March 13, its been over a month since then. Hopefully some news will eventually come out.

The way I see it, this film will either "save" Godzilla, or kill him for good.

Considering his reputation already seems to be in the pits, there's not much to lose, and worth the risk.

I hope they release the press design for all the script and stuff, probably like the director and what the movie is about with characters, monster design and what monster will Godzilla fight.

The director is Gareth Edwards -- unless something has changed and we don't know it yet.

Yes but try to see it likes this: Edwards is enthuastic about the project. The project hasn't avanced significantly in the last months. Edwards isn't allowed to write the script. The script they already have has been rewritten god knows how many times. Edwards grows impatient. Toho keeps putting restrictions and crap because of the 1998 Godzilla. Edwards gets tired and leaves the project so he doesn't get stuck in a limbo.

I hope that ANY news is announced this year, though I am not counting on it.
Apparently SWTOR said that I can invite 25 people for a 7 day trial of the game. PM me if interested.

If thats true then that would be perfect honestly. Set it up for the 60th anniversary would be great. I'll take it!

I don't know how "legit" it really is? It looks more like a fanboy site to me. But, its the newest info I could find on the search engine.

Not major news but definitely interesting...

"Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures put "42", the Jackie Robinson Biopic, on deck for April 12, 2013."
http://www.legendary.com/news/post/42-o ... l-12-2013/

Legendary now has 7 films to be released in 2013 and nothing set for 2014. My gut feeling is that Godzilla will come out in 2014 and that we will probably get an announcement either around or after the release of TDKR. Usually studios release about 2 or 3 big blockbusters a year and with nothing set for 2014 I see that as Godzilla's spot. Just gotta wait and see!

I'm not holding my breath for tihs film. Too little to go on to be convinced that LP is doing anything at all with Godzilla. It won't surprise me if they scrapp it or if they already have.

My thoughts exactly though I do worry about Legendary thinking that Man of Steel or Pacific Rim will be their next big franchises instead but I would think they would not considering Pacific Rim is an unproven film and will probably end up just being one movie and Man of Steel is hanging by a thread because should the film not do as good its been reported Warner Bros will not do any Superman movies for awhile so they could very well be waiting for TDKR to get done and then focus on Godzilla as their next big franchise.

In response to Livingcorpse, of course LP will eventually bust out something related to Godzilla. But that doesn't mean that by that time Edwards and company will still be involved. This is what I meant by being scrapped. I see it being similar to the 94' Tristar Godzilla being scrapped in favor for Emmerich's forsaken attempt. It might just turn out that Del Toro may eventually get on board for Godzilla depending on his success with Pacific Rim.

He's only had one film. Can't really say he's good or bad. :?


Well Monsters wasn't that great. That's the only work of his I've seen. It wasn't bad at all, it just isn't as great as people seem to say.

Never really cared for Del Toro anyways and its because of that that i find it hard to get excited about Pacific Rim. Dont understand why that was on Legendary's list ahead of Godzilla or why Del Toro wouldnt want to just make it into a Godzilla movie as the plot sounds exactly something you would see in a G-film
