Are there no original ideas anymore? Yeah, it’s cheap and easy to do these remakes, so why not? Godzilla is being remade for a 2012 release, and it will apparently stay true to the original story. Overall, Godzilla has appeared in 28 films produced by Japan’s Toho Studios. An American remake was produced by TriStar Pictures in 1998, starring Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno. It made a decent worldwide gross in 1998, but was considered a critical flop. So I guess it’s time to try again! Legendary Pictures is set to produce it this time around.
