Warner Bros dropped a bombshell on Comic-Con earlier in the year when they showed a totally unannounced trailer for a new Godzilla picture and not much has been heard since. However, the wheels are now firmly in motion and a release date of May 16, 2014 has been announced.

Gareth Edwards will direct this latest take on the legendary monster and while the exact details are being kept firmly under wraps, the somewhat spotty information available indicates that the aim is to produce a gritty and realistic monster movie packed full of action!

Big name writers David Callaham (The Expendables); David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight franchise); and Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son) are all attached to the project.

Speculation is rife in regards to both casting and the approach that will be taken. Godzilla is perhaps one of the most well known of all classic movie monsters and anyone taking him on is making a bold move. Only time will tell of Edwards is the man for the job!
