No Godzilla For Guillermo Del Toro

Latino Review recently ran the story that Hellboy director, Guillermo Del Toro, was offered to direct the new Godzilla film. Hitflix recently sat down with the director and according to him, this is the first he’s ever heard of this.

“What rumor? I am not involved in ‘Godzilla’ at all, I haven’t read it or plan to read it. Nor have I been approached to direct it.”

So far things aren’t looking so good for the new Godzilla film.  Recently, Legendary Pictures got the script for the movie and apparently it wasn’t that great. Clash of the Titans screenwriter Travis Beacham’s film, Pacific Rim, was rumored to become part of the Godzilla movie. Guillermo Del Toro, who is attached to direct that film, says that the Pacific Rim has nothing to do with Godzilla.

Things are not looking good for the big guy. I want to see this come to fruition and at the same time I don’t. We’ll just have to wait and see as more is revealed from the project.

Extra Tidbit: Pacific Rim is a story about the world being attacked by giant creatures and the human race has to band together to fight them off. Haven’t we already seen this in about 5 other Godzilla movies?
