Is 'Godzilla 2' Moving Forward?

Writer Max Borenstein gives clues as to the sequel's chances.

Story by Matt Cummings

When the rebooted Godzilla arrived in 2014, audiences rewarded it with a $93 million opening weekend and a worldwide haul of over $528m. But it's also safe to say that fans were disappointed at the lack of scenes (only 8 minutes total) which actually featured the big guy in all his glory. So when Legendary Pictures announced it was moving forward with a planned June 8, 2018 release, fans were understandably worried that he might get the same treatment.

From Screenwriter Max Borstein's recent comments, it seems like we have little to fear. According to a recent interview with Collider, Borenstein - who's working on the Fox Television adaptation of Minority Report - had this to say about what's coming in the sequel:

"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."
We also know Star Wars Anthology - Rogue One Director Gareth Edwards will be returning to helm. But while we do not know if Aaron-Taylor Johnson, David Strathairn, Elizabeth Olsen, or Ken Watanabe will return, it's been confirmed that three of Godzilla's most recognizable supporting characters - Mothra, Godan, and Ghidorah - are set to appear. Based on all the things we've stitched together, it's likely that his promise of bigger and better might actually come true.
