TOHO are making waves in America! The Japanese film production company and Godzilla rights owners have made a major investment in their international American subsidiary company as part of their TOHO Vision 2021 management plan. This initiative aims to establish partnerships with major players in Hollywood to co-produce Japanese content - including this year's Godzilla 2: King of the Monsters and Pokémon Detective Pikachu.
This America subsidiary has been relatively dormant since 1953 when it was initially established, so this sudden posturing suggests that TOHO are planning a major shift and focus on developing more content for Western audiences.
We already know Warner Brothers and Legendary are eager to keep the Monsterverse going if King of the Monsters and Godzilla vs. Kong perform well enough at the box office. But, beyond more Godzilla films, this also means we could see other TOHO properties given the Hollywood treatment. As we learn more of TOHO's dealings and plans, we'll be sure to keep you updated!
