Krampus screenwriters set to tackle Godzilla 2

10.20.2016

We have some time to go yet before KONG: SKULL ISLAND hits theaters, and even more time before GODZILLA 2 is up on the silver screen, but that's not stopping Legendary Pictures from planning ahead. Variety reports that Legendary is looking to hire Michael Dougherty & Zach Shields (KRAMPUS) to pen the sequel to the Gareth Edwards picture. No word yet on whether or not Doughery might direct the film (as he did with KRAMPUS).

Furthermore, it looks as though Legendary might be setting up a writers room in order to craft a more cohesive GODZILLA/KONG universe down the road. God knows everyone else is setting up their own movie universe, so why not with giant monsters? SKULL ISLAND looks to be, for the most part, a stand-alone adventure, so I'm guessing that we won't start seeing some real crossover goodies until GODZILLA 2, at the very least. Obviously this will all culminate in KONG V GODZILLA: DAWN OF WE'RE ALL F*CKED (title pending) in May 29, 2020. Where they take it from there is anyone's guess.

GODZILLA 2 is scheduled to hit theaters on March 22, 2019.

I thought the last Hollywood Godzilla movie was pretty good. Sure they wasted Bryan Cranston's performance, but Edwards get it that Godzilla is neither good nor evil, it's a huge goddamn 'natural' disaster. Hopefully the new writers get that as well.

If I was making this movie, I would have kept this a secret...

I get it, the Krampus writer comes at a discount and the Krampus is a monstrous being along with Godzilla, but let's get real. Krampus was horribly written and pretty terrible for those of us that watched it. It worked as a B horror film but cant they find stronger writing talent.

I don't really think we need Godzilla 2. If they're going to make Kong vs. Godzilla, just do that next. At best Godzilla 2 will just be a re-hash of ideas/plots they've done before, at worst it will just be a set up for Kong vs Godzilla anyway.

Yesssss

Maybe they will give the characters some fucking characteristics other than bland army guy and his awesome dad who dies too soon. I'm sick of bad American Godzilla movies. They just don't seem to be able to get it right. They focus too much on 'Merica Fuck Yeah moments and not enough Godzilla being awesome moments. Yes, the original Godzilla has him fighting the military, but they at least make Godzilla the main character in its movies and not a crappy afterthought.
