Godzilla made in USA again!!!

Είχα αναφερθεί κι εδώ στο νέο αμερικάνικο remake-reboot του πρωτότυπου Godzilla, αλλά τώρα η φήμη επιβεβαιώθηκε. Η εταιρεία Legendary Pictures υπέγραψε συμφωνία με την Toho (η εταιρεία-δημιουργός του πασίγνωστου τέρατος) κι ελπίζουν η νέα ταινία να είναι έτοιμη μέχρι το 2012! Το όνομα του σκηνοθέτη αναμένεται να ανακοινωθεί σύντομα (πόσο γαμάτο θα ήταν όμως αν π.χ. το αναλάμβανε κάποιος σαν τον Blomkamp;)...

Μέρος της επίσημης ανακοίνωσης από την Legendary Pictures:

"Toho’s GODZILLA franchise boasts one of the most widely recognized film creatures worldwide, resulting in a series of books, television programs, video games and more than 25 films worldwide. Legendary intends to approach the film and its characters in the most authentic manner possible. The company will, in the near future, announce a filmmaker to helm the film for an intended 2012 release. The film will fall under the company’s co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Toho will distribute the film in Japan.

"Godzilla is one of the world’s most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise,” said Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary. “Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."
