Gareth Edwards had left directing duties on Godzilla 2 according to Deadline Hollywood. Edwards, who’s next film will be Star Wars: Rogue One.
The split is said to be amicable that Edwards wants to focus on a film that’s more scaled back in nature than the big budgets he’s been working on.
So, who is Legendary going to get to helm the next Godzilla? Are they going to snap up the next big thing like they did with Edwards for the first one, or are they going to get someone already established?
I’d like to see Steven Spielberg take a stab at it given his great monster films of Jaws and Jurassic Park, but I know that’s not in the cards.
Okay dear reader, you’re the big boss at Legendary, who are you going after for this sequel? Let us know in the comments below.
