Godzilla 3-D Moves Ahead

At the 3D Summit in Universal City, producer Brian Rogers told Zennie 62 that Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers’ planned 3D GODZILLA reboot will be taking a darker, more serious approach.

In the video, Rogers mentioned  BATMAN BEGINS/THE DARK KNIGHT as an example of how an existing franchise can be improved for a modern audience.

However, he also suggested that there might  be other monster(s) for Godzilla to fight, suggesting aspects of the old-fashioned monster rallies of the 1960’s and 70’s.

The project was actually brought to him by Yoshimitsu Banno, director of GODZILLA VS. THE SMOG MONSTER (Godzilla Vs. Hedorah), as he had the rights to do Godzilla in IMAX — which doesn’t seem to on the table at this point.

The iconic Japanese monster will be realized via computer animation, but Brian Rogers emphasized that it will be a live-action film. A tentative 2012 release is anticipated.
