Screenwriter Max Borenstein teases a bigger, better Godzilla 2

While Toho is preparing to make a new Japanese Godzilla film that's set to be released in 2016, screenwriter Max Borenstein is busy writing the script for a sequel to the 2014 American GODZILLA, a sequel which won't be reaching theatres until June 8, 2018.

With the movie's release nearly three years off, everyone involved is being understandably tight-lipped about the details. When asked about the project by Collider at the Television Critics Association Press Tour, Borenstein could only say this:

I'm writing it now, and it's really going to be great. I don't want to go off book and tell you anything that I’m not allowed to tell you. The response to the first film was really exciting, but now that that world is established, we can do bigger and even better things. We're really stoked.

"Bigger and better" is certainly within reach if Godzilla has the co-stars that were teased in a video shown at the 2014 San Diego Comic-Con: Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.

GODZILLA director Gareth Edwards will be returning to the helm for GODZILLA 2, which does dampen my enthusiasm somewhat. His attempts to build anticipation by cutting away from monsters and action instead built my frustration. There wasn't nearly enough Godzilla in that Godzilla movie for my taste, so I'm hoping the sequel will feature a lot more monster action and Godzilla screen time.
