Awful information for legendary’s proposed Godzilla/King Kong cinematic universe – they’ve just misplaced director Gareth Edwards, who became in the back of the achievement of 2014’s first Godzilla film.
Edwards had first of all signed on to direct Godzilla 2, which would be part of his first instalment as a part of a mixed cinematic universe with Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: cranium Island; with hopes the 2 iconic beasts might then meet in conflict in Godzilla v Kong, set for a 2020 launch.
Closing date is, but, reporting that the cut up was totally amicable; meaning the departure might also have less to do with innovative variations, and extra to do with Edwards’ excessive call for.
Coming off this year’s especially-predicted Rogue One: a star Wars tale, Edwards is now looking to pursue a few smaller projects. He first received noticed for his sharp, ultra low-budget directorial debut Monsters; so he may be seeking out something in a similar vein.
We will simply need to wait and see who steps in to fill Edwards’ footwear; directing a script penned with the aid of Max Borenstein, also in the back of Godzilla and Kong: cranium Island.
Godzilla 2 is set for a US launch 22 March 2019.
