To say that any news on Legendary Pictures upcoming 3D "Godzilla" film has been scarce is an incredible understatement. After the studio announced the film way back in March, and promised that news on a director was forthcoming, it went into total silence mode.
Since that time there have been a few rumors, one that Tim Burton was being courted as either a producer or director, a t-shirt at this years Comic Con, and that's about it.
Now, possibly, we may get some 'real' info about the film from producer Brian Rogers who will be speaking at this years 3D Entertainment Summit in Los Angeles. The event, which will be held at the Hilton Los Angeles/Universal City on September 15th and 16th, will feature a all the big names in the 3D entertainment field from video games to movies.
It is certain, that if Rogers is going to be in attendance, then he will undoubtedly be talking about "Godzilla 2012 3D", and for the first time since the film was announced we will be getting some real 'meat-and-potatoes' information to talk about ............. let's hope.
Here is Rogers info from the event's website:
Brian began producing 3-D projects in 1992. His latest project is the motion picture "Godzilla" for Legendary Pictures and Warner Brothers Studios. He has an extensive background in visual effects driven, ground breaking, new technology projects and has worked in all 3-D formats including 65 mm; 35 mm and High Definition digital capture including producing the world’s first high definition digital 3-D production.
