Would you like another Godzilla movie? Other than the one from Legendary Pictures? Good! Japan feels the same way.

In light of the $500-million+ global box office success of the recent Godzilla remake, the originators of the beast want to make another film to capitalize on the momentum the reboot has brought.

This will be the 29th Godzilla movie, the first from Toho since 2004′s Godzilla: Final Wars, and it will start filming in summer 2015. And there’s a chance it may come to the US and other countries as well.

Though the movie is set to use CG, it’s not clear if they’ll mimic the design of the recent movie, or go for a more familiar feel to their franchise.

“This is very good timing after the success of the American version this year: if not now, then when?” a Toho staffer told The Reporter. “The licensing contract we have with Legendary places no restrictions on us making domestic versions.”

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
