Godzilla will be stomping back into cinemas in 2012, this time possibly in 3-D. Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros Pictures said this week they will co-produce a new Godzilla film which will "pay respects to the original 1954 picture rather than follow up on Sony's 1998 Godzilla," according to Daily Variety.
The 1998 film received criticism from some fans that Godzilla looked too much like a giant lizard and was eventually awarded the dishonor of the "Golden Raspberry" award for worst remake.
Legendary Pictures plans to announce the director for the film soon, and there are rumors that it will be filmed in 3-D to compete with big hits such as "Avatar" and "Alice in Wonderland."
Legendary Pictures founder and president Thomas Tull commented, "We plan to make a Godzilla movie that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed the character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."© Japan Today
