J.J. Abrams is currently hard at work on resurrecting the Star Wars franchise, having just recently started working on Star Wars: Episode VII, but he is now no longer the only director working to bring the legendary sci-fi franchise back to the big screen.

Godzilla Becomes Death, Destroyer Of Worlds In First-Look Teaser
It was more than a year ago that crowds at San Diego Comic Con got their first look at Godzilla, a new take on the classic monster movie with Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards behind it. Since then Godzilla has returned to Comic Con and brought a teaser that actually includes the cast, but only now is that first tease now available online for all of us to see
Monsters: Dark Continent Teaser Trailer Delivers Dead Beasts, Military Men, And A Whole Lot Of Dust
The teaser doesn’t really give much of an indication one way or the other. I like the ominous tone, and the visual of a giant tentacled creature being driven away on a truck will get me every time. But just watching military men slowly walk through the dust and stare off at something that I can’t see isn’t that intriguing.

Say what you will about promising a giant lizard movie would be realistic, but Edwards proved with Monsters he could make a genre movie low-to-the-ground and character-based, and it's exciting to hunk of how he might do it on a larger budget too.

Monsters Sequel Moving Forward With New Writer, Director
Gareth Edwards’ Monsters was a modest hit back in 2010, burning up the film festival circuit (with a memorable stop in Austin for SXSW) and earning decent box office overseas.

Godzilla Remake Finds A Writer In Max Borenstein
If you're old enough to have seen the excremental 1998 Godzilla movie, you've probably had just about enough time to scrub the memory of it out of your brain. That can only mean one thing. Time for a remake! Well, not that new. Rumors began floating back in 2009 that Legendary Pictures, the folks behind The Dark Knight and 300, wanted to bring the giant lizard back to the big screen. Now this latest take on Godzilla has landed a new writer named Max Borenstein.
New Godzilla Movie To Be Made With A Guy In A Rubber Suit?
It's funny to think of anyone being afraid of the old Japanese Godzilla movies. Sure, the thought of a giant monster destroying a city isn't pleasant, but the low-budget rubber suits make the films look comical by modern standards. Roland Emmerich tried to fix this by going with an entirely CGI beast in his 1998 version, but hardcore fans were unhappy with the design and the movie surrounding the monster was complete crap.
