We've been reporting on Legendary Picture's remake of Godzilla since 2010, but this is a project that they are clearly taking their time on to try to get right.
A new report reveals that we may get our first look at Godzilla at this year's Legendary Pictures panel at SDCC. According to Latino Review, who known for their scoops, a presentation is planned a Legendary's big SDCC surprise:
"Not only is Legendary bringing the Lizard to comic con but get this, I hear the presentation is SICK! I’m not going to get into specific spoiler territory because then what’s the point of attending the panel, but take this one to the bank.
Godzilla will stomp both the audio and video systems within Hall H two weeks from this Saturday! I’ll be there to witness it myself. I can already envision them shutting down the lights, hearing Godzilla’s roar, and the crowd going wild!"
Monster's Gareth Edwards will be directing the film and Max Borenstein was hired to polish up a script from David Goyer. There are no other details on the project beyond that, but we'll be at the panel and will let you know all about it next month. Monster movies are poised to make a big comeback in the US, with Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim also planned to be present at SDCC.
