Mothra beware; Legendary Pictures to bring us Godzilla 3D


Legendary Pictures, the studio responsible for the recent revival of Batman and his Kryptonian life-partner Superman, have gotten their hands on the next installment of the Godzilla franchise. While they currently have no director, the studio announced their intention to move forward with the 3D feature, and already seem to have a fairly well-known group of producers working on the project.

So far, the production staff includes Danny Lin, who happens to have his name attached to the American adaptation of Death Note, the recently released Sherlock Holmes and the flop that was Terminator Salvation, and Roy Lee, the man responsible for the American adaptations of Ju-On, and The Ring.

The two producers will be working with veteran Godzilla producer Yoshimitsu Banno, who had directed one of the original 1971 features. I can imagine that the studio would want to avoid another flop like the 1998 remake, so we'll just have to wait and see. While they weren't entirely clear about plans to film in 3D from the start, or if they'll wait until post-production to add it in, I'd like to think they'd know better than to waste our time by doing it in post. It'd be like Alice in Wonderland all over again, right? Nobody wants that.
