Gareth Edward’s Godzilla didn’t win over everyone who went to go and see the film last year, with many complaining that it took “too long” for The King of the Monsters to show up. However the movie made enough money to greenlight a sequel, which is bringing back director Gareth Edwards and writer Max Borenstein.
I’m writing it now, and it’s really going to be great,” Borenstein told Collider. “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.”
“He’s making Star Wars right now, so he’s a little preoccupied,” he said of director Edwards. “Gareth is amazing.”
Godzilla 2 will hit cinemas on June 8th, 2017.
