Warner Bros and Legendary in Talks for Godzilla Sequel



After the massive success of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla over the weekend, Warner Bros and Legendary Pictures have now announced that plans are underway for a sequel to the movie.

Since opening on Thursday last week, the film has already racked up nearly $200 million in the box office worldwide. Despite criticism from some quarters, it has been generally well-received, particularly by Godzilla fans. Said Legendary’s president and chief creative officer Jon Jashni, “It’s very validating. You can’t ask for a better situation when you have a group of people, who were perhaps expecting to be let down were impressed.”

According to Variety, the development of a sequel had been anticipated by the studios. In a press conference on Monday 12th May, a panel made up of director Gareth Edwards, producer Thomas Tull and stars Bryan Cranston, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen was asked about the possibility of a sequel. At the time, Gareth Edwards replied that he and Thomas Tull had decided not to “jinx it” before the first film had had a chance to prove itself, yet it was clear that the possibility had not been ruled out.
