CinemaBlend is reporting that David Goyer, part of the writing team behind the successful film “Batman Begins”, is going to write the script to Legendary Pictures’ “Godzilla” remake. According to Deadline, Goyer will write the screenplay based on a draft by David Callaham.

Goyer’s most recent project includes writing “Man of Steel,” the Superman remake that promises to be grittier and closer to the Superman storyline than the film “Superman Returns.”

“Godzilla,” a film franchise that was popular in the late ’60s and ’70s, has tried to have a revamp in recent years, but to no success. The most memorable revamp of the story was 1998’s “Godzilla,” directed by Roland Emmerich and starred Matthew Broderick, Maria Pitillo, Jean Reno and Hank Azaria. It was a box office bomb and only registers at 25% on Rotten Tomatoes. Personally, I’m a fan of that movie just because it’s one of those films you can turn your brain off and just watch, but I can see how true “Godzilla” fans can be annoyed with it.

This new “Godzilla,” however, aims at being more respectful to the storyline than the 1998 version, and hiring someone associated with “Batman Begins” is one way Legendary Pictures is going about doing it.

What do you think about this? Sound off below.

  1. Nice job. I think Keaton and Williams would feel like cameos though. Rather see two actors never before associated with Batman. Would love to see a Beyond movie. Maybe a couple films with a Frank Miller, aged, alcoholic, out of retirement Bats and then move on to Beyond…
