Godzilla 2016 Hideaki Anno Shinji Higuchi

It's been announced that Japanese filmmakers Hideaki Anno (Neon Genesis Evangelion) and Shinji Higuchi (THE SINKING OF JAPAN) will co-direct Toho's first new Godzilla movie in twelve years. Besides directing, Anno is also writing the script for GODZILLA 2016 (official title) and Higuchi is handling the film's visual effects. The duo previously worked together on GOD WARRIOR APPEARS IN TOKYO.

Toho on hiring Hideaki Anno and Shinji Higuchi for the project:

Ever since Hollywood announced that ‘Godzilla’ was to be resurrected, the expectation for another Japanese Godzilla grew. And if we were to newly produce, we looked into Japanese creators who were the most knowledgeable and who had the most passion for Godzilla.

Toho has also released the first teaser image for the film, which you can check out below. Production on GODZILLA 2016 should begin this summer, and it will be released sometime in 2016. Gareth Edwards' GODZILLA sequel is slated to open on June 8, 2018.

Holy Shit..

Please be real! Please be real! Please be real!
Anno tackling a large live action film like this could finally get him that much closer to making a Live Action Evangelion film, which I don't necessarily believe could ever work outside of his own hands.
...wait wtf am I talking about... ANNO GET BACK TO WORK AND FINISH 4.0!!!

Seriously though, I'm happy for Anno if this is true. This has got to be a huge geek honor for him and he's probably over the moon to get to building all those
