A new big screen version of the many times made and remade Godzilla.
The previous big screen Godzilla endeavor was from Columbia Pictures in 1998, and did mediocre business at the movie box office. That film starred Matthew Broderick and was directed by Roland Emmerich.
Warner Bros. is betting a lot on the director of the Godzilla reboot. Gareth Edwards has never made a Hollywood movie before. His only big screen credit to date is the hardly seen, box office bomb Monsters, which was practically a direct-to-DVD release in 2010.
The Shawshank Redemption director and The Walking Dead creator, Frank Darabont, was hired on January 4, 2013 to pen the final rewrite for the Godzilla reboot, which hits theaters Summer 2014.
