That's about it.


Link?

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

Well it does seem legit but the only thing it doesnt mention is Gareth Edwards which is odd

but lets hope its legit! Need some official confirmation!

It looks fake to me seeing that it's info that we already know and the page layout looks really bad at the same time.

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.

Yes cause LP is so gonna throw away money to get the rights to a franchise they're not gonna use and I'm totally not being sarcastic, like no lie. :roll:

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.

Del Toro was asked multiple times to turn Pacific Rim into Godzilla and he refused.

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

I could do without giant robots in G films from now on.

As could I but the thing that annoys me the most is that this movie became a top priority over Godzilla and i dont understand why and I have a very hard time getting excited for it when anytime I see anything about this movie I think that it couldve been about Godzilla instead. If they wanted to combine this with Godzilla they should've done it before Del Toro got involved.

My next comment is not based on fact, just a guess to see what people have to say...

You think Legendary/WB is waiting to see how the Hobbit is going to do with the whole 48 FPS? If it takes off they might push it on the new Godzilla movie?

Which I am aware a lot of early reviews of the 48 FPS footage is leaning towards bad.

Its a decent assumption, from what I heard and read about the 48 FPS footage was that to most, it looked like a TV soap opera show. (Someone used General Hospital as a example) Saying that there was no cinematic appearance and that the adventurous settings/movie settings looked like a normal set that you would see in a, you guessed it, a TV show.

There's nothing wrong with change, but this is really going to tear the audience/people wanting to see down in half for that film.

I don't think LP will be going with the new 48 fps format for the Godzilla film, in fear of turning potential audiences off, its something that might be avoided.

So aside from the brief Gareth Edwards and Max Borenstein interviews back in March we have nothing? How is nobody able to ask these guys or Legendary staff themselves what the deal is? I'd like to know what is the whole secrecy thing is about and also how the script is coming along if its finished and been approved? Will there be anything at Comic Con?

So many questions. Is this Toho causing the delay? If so why would they?

Anyone that goes to comic con this year really should just ask Legendary whats the progress on the movie? We are STARVING for something.


Didnt Thomas Tull say awhile back at last years either SD or NY comic con to "stay tuned for an update on a project called Godzilla" or something lke that?
