Godzilla gets a release date and wait to you hear who’s writing it!

January 8th, 2013 by Marc Comments

Godzilla isn’t eactly on our list of movies we can’t wait to see rebooted… but… this changes things. Somewhat.

According to aintitcool the Legendary/Warner Brothers reboot of the original giant lizard movie, being handled by Gareth Edwards, will begin filming in March this year with its eye on a probable summer 2014 release.

But here’s the most interesting part: it will be written by FTN favourite Frank Darabont. Darabont is the man behind The Shawshank Redemption, the Mist and bringing The Walking Dead to our TV screens.

It’s ok, you can be a little excited. Even if it’s just on the inside…

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….
