Shocking news was announced over the weekend. Seeing the global popularity of Godzilla has increased from the 2014 Hollywood film, several Toho staff had been meeting for the past few months in what has been called Goji-Con (aka Godzilla Conferences) and just yesterday, Toho gives the green light to produce a new Godzilla movie separate from the Legendary universe. This will be the first Japanese Godzilla movie in 12 years since Godzilla Final Wars. Producting will start in summer of 2015 and the new film is expected to be released in 2016, 2 years before Legendary's 2018 sequel. To further stir up confidence, Toho proclaims that"The time has come to make a film that will not bow down to the Hollywood film". This is exciting news and hopefully they will have enough creative minds and funding to back up this statement. How do you feel with the Japanese Godzilla's return? Jump into the discussion board and share your feelings.
