With 2014’s Godzilla reboot finally washing away the stench of 1998’s poor effort, it wasn’t all that surprising when Legendary announced that a sequel has been greenlighted.
Since that initial announcement though we’ve has very little information surface regarding the skyscraper-sized lizard’s next outing, until now.
Max Borenstein, writer of the first film, has confirmed that he will be returning to write the script for the sequel and has promised that Godzilla’s second time out in this new franchise will be “bigger and better” than the last.
While talking with Collider, the writer had this to say:
“I’m writing it now, and it’s really going to be great. I don’t want to go off book and tell you anything that I’m not allowed to tell you. The response to the first film was really exciting, but now that that world is established, we can do bigger and even better things. We’re really stoked.”
Borenstein also went on to confirm that Gareth Edwards will be collaborating on the script though his time may be taken up by a little project he’s working on called Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One. That said, the studio has already confirmed that Edwards will be returning to direct Godzilla’s sequel so his writing involvements will most likely be significant.
The untitled Godzilla sequel is currently expected to release June 8, 2018.
