While a sequel to Godzilla vs Kong is being made in Hollywood, work has also begun on a new monster movie project in the Far East.
Representatives from Japanese company Toho have officially announced that Godzilla will receive a new feature-length production. We even learned the release date – 3 November 2023.
Although plot details have not yet been revealed, we do know that Takashi Yamazaki (Lupin III: The First, Parayste Part 1 and Part 2, Dragon Quest: Your Story) is responsible for directing.
Godzilla has seen a number of cinema projects in Japan over the past few decades. The most recent is 2016’s Shin Godzilla.
Godzilla is a fictional giant kaijū monster from the film series of the same name. He first appeared in the 1954 film Godzilla, and the rights to him are held by the Toho film company. He is one of the most popular icons of Japanese pop culture. Depending on the medium, he is created as either a threat to humanity or its defender. His opponents are often other giant monsters, sometimes sent to Earth by aliens.
The film, which is being developed on behalf of Warner Bros, and Legendary Pictures, will depict King Kong and Godzilla’s battle against the ‘threat lurking inside Earth’. The Godzilla vs. Kong sequel will hit the big screen on 15 March 2024.
