Sony announced that they will be creating a brand new kaiju film. The new film will be based on the upcoming kaiju heist comic by AfterShock titled The Kaiju Score. A description of comic is given below.
"It’s the most dangerous heist ever attempted. Four desperate criminals are going all in on a once-in-a-lifetime chance to steal millions in art and turn their miserable lives around. The catch? They have to pull it off under the nose of a one thousand-ton kaiju. And a giant monster might just be the least of their problems"
