CinemaBlend reports that Gareth Edwards is close to signing a deal with Legendary Pictures to direct a new version of Godzilla due out in 2012. And you know what, as far as talented young sci-fi directors go, this couldn't have happened to a better guy.
I'm really excited to see what the guy's gonna do with this legendary monster. Personally, I'd like to see a more darker Godzilla, not of it as a character but more in the style of Cloverfield where there is this air of mystery and horror about the monster.
Godzilla will begin production shortly and will be stomping Tokyo probably in the summer of 2012.
