Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA Sequel Could Be DESTROY ALL MONSTERS!
Director Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot doesn't come out for another year, but that doesn't mean he's not already thinking about what he'd like to do for the sequel! While talking to our friends at Screen Rant, the director was asked which movie from the original series was his favorite, and this was his answer:
“With the exception of the 1954 original, I would say my second favorite film is Destroy All Monsters. I just love the idea of a monster island. Having a world with these creatures in it. I find that fascinating and would like to treat that realistically. I wouldn’t want to limit it to one other foe, I think it’s more fun to – this question will come back to haunt me if we ever do a sequel – but I think multiple creatures make better movies in terms of the image of Gojira.”
For those of you not familiar with Destroy All Monsters, it featured eleven different giant monsters throughout the film. It seems like that is the direction Edwards would want to take the sequel if he gets to do one. If he does go that route, then we're all in for a real treat! I hope he gets around to doing it! How do you feel about Destroy All Monsters being the inspiration for the sequel?
It looks like Edwards has a solid vision for this franchise reboot. The footage he showed at Comic-Con was epic. It definitely got me and the other 6,666 people in Hall H excited as hell to see more.
Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston, and Sally Hawkins. It hits theaters on May 16th, 2014!
