Gareth Edwards Gives An Update On GODZILLA Reboot
Gareth Edwards shared some details recently while doing press for Monsters which came out on DVD/Blu-ray this week!
He spoke to Shock Till You Drop about his for plans for the reboot of Godzilla for Legendary Pictures. He wasn’t able to share too many specifics, but the director assured fans that the franchise will be handled with respect. Edwards was able to share very small details about his hopes for the project,
I guess I will say I’m highly aware – and everyone involved is incredibly aware – of everyone’s opinions on what this film has to do and what it has to be. And no one will do anything but the right thing. Without addressing anything specific, everyone knows how important is to get it right.
My earliest memories was channel 4, they showed them every Friday night. As a kid I wasn’t quite sure about the dubbing, the English-dubbed versions. They threw me for a bit. I love science fiction and, well I call them B movies but they’re not, but I love ’60s and ’70s sci-fi. But these would come on and be dubbed and it would take my kid brain to adjust to the dubbing. It took me some time to get through that.
Everyone involved knows what the film has to be, what’s important to me is that, as well as spectacle, you have to give a shit about what’s happening and why.
