Godzilla 2 Monsters: 'Skull Island' Writer Penning Script For Sequel, A Possible King Kong Vs Godzilla Crossover?
From Franchise Herald
Max Borenstein is returning to writing duties for "Gozdilla 2". He'll also be writing the script for the forthcoming King Kong movie "Skull Island", leaving fans to speculate if the King Kong versus King Kaiju movie is a possibilty.
Godzilla 2 might well be on its way in production following Godzilla's success, who has passed $500 million at the worldwide box office.
But fans of the King Daikaiju are worried that the sequel may be delayed from its original plan after director Gareth Edwards announced his new spin off Star Wars that is due out in December 16, 2016.
"Ever since I saw Star Wars I knew exactly what I wanted to do for the rest of my life - join the Rebel Alliance! I could not be more excited and honored to go on this mission with Lucasfilm," Edwards said in a statement.
A legendary picture CEO Thomas Tull is however confident that Edwards' new film will not interfere with Godzilla 2.
"Gareth's filmmaking talent makes him one of his generation's most creative and visionary directors. The plan has always been for Gareth to direct a different film before we started on another Godzilla, but who knew it would be a Star Wars installment? We have a great plan in store for Godzilla fans and I am looking forward to seeing Gareth's imprint on the Star Wars universe."
Warner Bros. at San Diego's Comic Con announced that Gozdilla 2 was absolutely happening and will get on the sequel as soon as he finishes his Star Wars spin off.
Legendary Pictures and Universal also confirmed a King Kong prequel called Skull Island for November 4, 2016. Skull Island is rumored to feature a showdown between King Kong and Godzilla.
Additionally, the second installment has been confirmed recently at Comic Con where a short clip was presented showing three additional monsters to join the sequel. All three have appeared in previous Toho Co., Ltd. Films, largely responsible for Godzilla released in Japan.
