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.”
