David Goyer Re-Writes New Godzilla Film And New Godzilla Blu-Rays Coming Soon

“What you say?!!! Dark Knight writer David S. Goyer writing the new Godzilla movie? Why that is absurd!” Actually no. While David has been known to attribute his talents to the Batman series and now, the new Superman movie. Deadline has reported, that he has been brought on to the project to re-write the film’s script.

The project has been relatively quiet since Legendary first released new concept art of everyone’s favorite radioactive lizard. Since then, Expendables and live-action DOOM screenwriter, David Callaham, jumped on board, giving fans so much more faith a new American Godzilla film. /Sarcasm

There’s our boy

The project did however earned some indie street cred, when it enlisted the help of MONSTERS indie director Gareth Edwards. Hopefully, with David Goyer on board, fans can have a little faith in not seeing a repeat of Roland Emmerich’s 1998 film. Do you remember what Puff Daddy did to Zed Zeppelin’s Kashmir? What was that and why was Jimmy Page in the music video?! HOW COULD HE JUST STAND THERE AND LET IT HAPPEN?!

In other Godzilla related news, Media Blaster has acquired the rights to distribute two Godzilla classics. Destroy All Monsters and Godzilla VS Megalon, will be re-released on DVD and Blu-Ray. Both films will be re-mastered in HD and will contain many extra’s for fans. Destroy All Monsters will be released on October 25th and Godzilla vs Megalon will hit stores November 29th.

You can read the full synopsis for the films below.

DESTROY ALL MONSTERS (1968) is universally considered a strong fan favorite of the entire Godzilla series! It’s an all-star monster rally of epic proportions featuring Toho’s greatest and wildest mammoth monsters in the ultimate, all-out rubber suit rumble! See Godzilla, Mothra, Rodan, King Ghidorah, Anguirus, Minya, Spiega, Baragon, Gorosaurus, Manda and Varan in all their titanic glory! The film was directed by the famed Ishiro Honda, director of the original 1954 film and the last entry to feature the dream team of special effects supervisor Eiji Tsuburaya, music composer Akira Ifukube and producer Tomoyuki Tanaka. 

GODZILLA VS. MEGALON (1973) has been the most elusive Godzilla film in North America. This is the film that most baby-boomers saw in U.S. movie theaters and then had to rely on badly cropped VHS and DVD bootleg copies to enjoy the film thereafter. This entry features Godzilla taking on Megalon and Gigan with the help of the unforgettable growing robot, Jet Jaguar! Reportedly cut to receive a G-rating upon its U.S. release, the film was hosted by John Belushi in a Godzilla suit for its national TV premiere. 

Personally, I’m dying for a remastered version of Godzilla’s Revenge. I just get choked up every time I watched the scene where Godzilla teaches Godzuki(Minya) how to do the Atomic Breath.
