Most Godzilla fans still harbor ill feelings towards Hollywood's most recent effort at making a Godzilla film (the 1998 disaster starring Matthew Broderick), so let's hope Legendary Pictures - which bought the rights to Godzilla from Toho Co. in early 2010 - has something worthy planned for the giant Tokyo-smashing creature. When Legendary and Warner Bros announced they were moving forward on a new Godzilla back in March 2010, Chairman and CEO of Legendary Pictures Thomas Tull stated, "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed the character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."
Edwards' was practically a one-man show when he worked on Monsters, wearing multiple hats as writer, director, cinematographer, and visual effects supervisor. For less than $1 million, Edwards created a monster movie that delivered scares, had decent character development, and creepy tentacled aliens. It'll be interesting to see what he can do with a big budget and more resources.
