Legendary Pictures continues to bring in new blood to work on their highly anticipated "Godzilla 3D". Today the studio announced that they have hired Max Borenstein to write the script for the film which many speculate will be a remake of the original "Gojira" which stomped it's way into Japanese movie theaters way back in 1954. Borenstein like the film's director Gareth Edwards boasts a rather short resume. To date the young scribe has only penned two other screenplays including the upcoming supernatural thriller "The Seventh Son" (2013 release) for Warner Bros/Legendary and "Swordswallowers and Thin Men" way back in 2003 which he also directed.

Recently it had been reported that David Goyer who helped rejuvenate the Batman movie franchise with his screenplay for "The Dark Knight" was on board to do the same for Godzilla.

According to other sources associated with the production Toho is heavily monitoring many aspects of this new American Godzilla movie, presumably to ensure that the film doesn't turn out like the heavily bombasted "Godzilla 98". It has even been suggested that the studio insisted that Godzilla be played a man in a suit rather than a CG creation.

"Godzilla 3D" has been in the early development stages since March of 2010 and many aspects of the production have been kept close to the cuff by the studio.
