Godzilla

GODZILLA by sedani
There is another Godzilla movie coming in 2012. I thought the 1998 film was OK since I have no emotional or nostalgic investment in the franchise/character. I've always thought it was pretty cool though. So here they go again.
Legendary Pictures' upcoming Godzilla film finally has a writer, and its David Goyer. Working alongside director Gareth Edwards, Goyer has been tapped to take over the writing duties for the new film working on the first draft from David Callaham.

Goyer has a lot of experience in gothic and fanbase productions, doing horror early in his career before doing the Blade series and finally continuing with more comic book film work. His most famous films are Batman Begins and The Dark Knight, although he only co-wrote the first and submitted a story for the second.

Despite some high profile work, his name has also been attached to more questionable projects, including The Unborn, which he both wrote and directed, and the made for TV movie Nick Fury: Agent of Shield.

His resume has both hits and misses, leaving the upcoming Godzilla with the possibility to go either way.

Here we have David Goyer is writing the script for this new film. As stated in the article above, Goyer is the man who wrote and directed David Hasslehoff Nick Fury movie. The unintended connection here is through 1977 to '79, Godzilla stomped his way through the Marvel comic universe. He had his own title and many of the mainstream Marvel characters appeared as they tried to reign in the destruction. Most of the effort to control the monster was applied by S.H.I.E.L.D.'s Godzilla Squad lead by Dum Dum Dugan!
