Godzilla 2 already has a release date, director, and list of monsters in place, and now it also has a writer. Max Borenstein, who scripted this summer’s Godzilla, will be back to write the sequel.
Deadline reports that Borenstein’s deal with Legendary has already closed. Details on the overall plot of the new movie haven’t been revealed, but kaiju teased at Legendary’s Comic-Con panel include Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah. (And Godzilla, obviously.)
Yeah, so that doesn’t give me a lot of hope for this film. I mean the first one was fine. Just okay. But every problem I had with that film was a script problem and I was hoping they might have recognized that and brought some fresh blood to the project. Missed opportunity.
