The Deadline movie website reports that the American production company Legendary Pictures has hired David Goyer to rewrite the script for its remake of Toho's Godzilla monster film franchise. Goyer co-wrote Christopher Nolan's Batman trilogy, the Blade film trinity, and Zack Snyder's upcoming Superman reboot Man of Steel. David Callaham already wrote a script for the planned Godzilla remake. If the film is made, Warner Brothers and Toho will distribute it in their respective countries. Director Gareth Edwards and Legendary Pictures producers Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are also attached to the project.
Legendary Pictures indicated that its version will hew closer to the original 1954 film rather than Sony's 1998 Godzilla remake.
