New 'Godzilla' film to be 'grounded' and 'realistic,' says director

By Matthew Dougherty,

The King of the Monsters is coming back in a big way summer 2014 with the release of a brand new film simply titled Godzilla.

Director Gareth Edwards, known for 2010’s low budget hit Monsters, says that the film will be “grounded” and “realistic," according to ComingSoon.net.

“I've always been interested in Godzilla and the ideas around him. I really wanted to see another Godzilla film and jumped at the opportunity. My main idea was to imagine 'If this really happened, what would it be like?'” Edwards said.

The script is being co-written by David S. Goyer, who wrote The Dark Knight. David Callaham and Max Borenstein are also co-writing. Earlier this month, Drew Pearce was hired to rewrite the script.

NME points out that the Japanese franchise had 28 films between 1954 and 2004.

Back in 1998, Independence Day director Roland Emmerich made an American version that was ultimately panned by critics.

Godzilla is scheduled to be released on May 16, 2014, by Warner Bros. Pictures.
