Akira Takarada will be in Legendary's Godzilla!

It has been revealed via Twitter that Akira Takarada will be in the new Legendary Picture’s Godzilla film! If you don’t know how Akira Takarada is, then you must not have paid attention to the many many Godzilla films he was in, most notably the original Gojira, as well as the last Godzilla film, Final Wars. Takarada’s scene was completed on the first day of filming, and director Gareth Edwards has said it will help thematically connect the new film to the original Godzilla films.

The new Godzilla film releases May 16, 2014, and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, and everyone’s favorite, Bryan Cranston.

Godzilla – Monsters and Lawsuits

Godzilla is a hell of a monster, and the American remake will be fighting several monsters himself! In addition, Legendary Pictures and some of the producers are becoming monsters as they start dropping lawsuits on each other. It’s a classic Hollywood clusterfrak that hopefully won’t derail Gareth Edwards’s flick too much.

First the good news. Tim Kelly at CHUD has confirmed the following through a webinar from Warner Bros. promotion department:

**The film will feature more than one monster, confirming that two new monsters will also be wreaking havoc – this in addition to the big guy.

**Warner Bros. made it clear that their interpretation of the material “follows the story of a solider” and is “way different” than the Toho Godzilla films.

Two brand new monsters is awesome. Also it’s good if they stay away from the mechs for at least one movie so they don’t look too much like Pacific Rim. Frank Darabont is currently rewriting the script, but like Tim Kelly said, the information above is being presented by the studio, so it will likely end up in the final draft of the film when it begins filming later this year. As far as I know, the release date is still set for May 16, 2014.

However, THR is reporting Legendary is suing to dump Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Doug Davison from their producers credits, claiming they aren’t doing enough to qualify as being credited. As you can imagine, the trio are not happy about the loss of credit and the loss of a big payday, and are threatening to countersue and get a restraining order to halt production until the mess is sorted out.

American Godzilla film to be written by David Goyer

Legendary films has hired David Goyer to write the new Godzilla film based on a draft from David Callaham. Goyer cowrote the recent Batman films, but also wrote the Unborn, so this could go any direction. Monsters director Gareth Edwards is still attached.
