Monsters Director Lands Godzilla Reboot


Congratulations, Gareth Edwards: You've only made one film — this year's ingeniously low-budget alien indie Monsters, which you also did the special effects for — but you just won the big-league job of directing the Legendary Pictures reboot of Godzilla. You'll begin searching for a new writer to replace Doom screenwriter David Callaham, you'll pray that Roland Emmerich's 1998 entry has been mostly forgotten, and you'll hope that you have better luck rebooting a stalled franchise than, say, Louis Leterrier had with The Incredible Hulk, which didn't significantly improve on the box office of Ang Lee's disappointing first stab. We're rooting for you ... good luck. [Heat Vision/HR]
