Whilst Gareth Edwards’ GODZILLA remake isn’t due to be released until next year, the director is already thinking about plans for a possible sequel. A tad optimistic?
Speaking to Screen Rant, the director said, “With the exception of the 1954 original, I will say my second favourite 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.”
I’m pretty sure that the 1998 GODZILLA also had plans in place for a sequel, so don’t go counting your chickens just yet. That said, here’s hoping that Edwards’ film does good numbers and that his plans come to fruition. The original DESTROY ALL MONSTERS features eleven different monsters, so it would be quite the spectacle if brought to life with modern filmmaking methods.
Starring Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston and Sally Hawkins, GODZILLA is set for a 16th May, 2014 release.
