Spilling some details about the remake to the 1998 film is producer Brian Rogers, who also says that the upcoming movie will stay true to the traditional Godzilla character.
Godzilla was haunting New York citizens in the 1998 film but it will likely meet an equal opponent in the remake. Speaking to zennie62.com, producer Brian Rogers says that forthcoming "Godzilla" will feature at least one other monster which the title character will face off.
"There's going to be another monster, or monsters, that Godzilla will fight," he reveals, claiming that this kind of situation is what fan base wants to see. Meanwhile, he thinks what Sony did with the previous film by featuring Godzilla fighting an army "was not the same kind of spirit of the character."
On how the new Godzilla will look like, Rogers says Legendary wants to pay homage to the traditional Godzilla character. This perhaps means that the monster will have no Iguana-style anatomy like it was seen in the Roland Emmerich's film, but it will return to the more dinosaur-like form.
The filmmaker also claims that they hope to take "Godzilla" remake in the same direction as "Batman Begins" and "The Dark Knight". The upcoming action sci-fi movie is additionally planned to be made in 3-D.
Back in March when they first announced plans to make "Godzilla", Legendary stated they intend "to approach the film and its characters in the most authentic manner possible." Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary, added, "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see."
Godzilla is Toho's iconic character which was first turned into Japanese movie titled "Gojira". Since then, the character has appeared in many "giant monster" movies in Japan. The first U.S. version starring Matthew Broderick grossed $379 million worldwide.
