Max Borenstein Returns to Pen the Script for Legendary's Godzilla Sequel!

Max Borenstein Returns to Pen the Script for Legendary's Godzilla Sequel!

The sequel to 2014's Godzilla movie by director Gareth Edwards will once again see the return of screenwriter Max Borenstein! In a recent interview with Collider, Borenstein revealed that he is currently penning the script for Godzilla 2.

Slated for a June 8th, 2018 release date, Borenstein promises Bigger and Better things from the sequel, saying: "I’m writing it now, and it’s really going to be great. I don’t want to go off book and tell you anything that I’m not allowed to tell you. The response to the first film was really exciting, but now that that world is established, we can do bigger and even better things. We’re really stoked."

Gareth Edwards who is currently filming the first Star Wars Anthology: Rogue One film will return to direct Godzilla 2 for Warner Brothers Studios and Legendary Pictures. In terms of plot direction, we already know three of Godzilla's most iconic Monsters, Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah will all be making an appearance. During the filming of Godzilla (2014)Gareth always expressed interest in making a Destroy All Monsters style sequel - and it looks like Toho has given him that chance.

Thanks to Durp004 in the Godzilla forums for the heads up!

Liked the original story, just not the cast. As long as they go a different way with casting - that's awesome!

Max was reported to be working on the sequel nearly a year ago.  Deadline reported his involvement on September 18th of last year.  Old news, but its good to know he's currently working on it, and actively going for bigger and better things!  Color me excited!
