With over 524.9 million worldwide at the box office, the film clearly had a working formula going for it. I just hope that the big reveal method was only going to be used in the first film. I think we can all agree that we would like to see Godzilla on screen for more than eight minutes in the sequel. That being said, Edwards and Borenstein do appear to have a good dynamic and if they can create a sequel that has more of a focus on the monsters, there probably won’t be that many complaints.
Ever since hitting it big with ‘Godzilla,’ Borenstein has been in big demand having just been tapped to not only work on the recently King Kong origin story ‘Skull Island.’ but also the pilot episode for the ‘Minority Report‘ series that will follow the events from the Steven Spielberg movie.
With Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures banking on a big budget spectacular for a sequel and Edwards already having shown off some possible monsters to go up against Godzilla at the last San Diego Comic-Con, things seem to be going well for the production. Of course, with a June 8th, 2018 release date due to Edwards working on a ‘Star Wars’ spin-off there is plenty of time to get the best bang for their buck on production work. Not only that, but it will give Borenstein enough time to finish up the other scripts that he has been tapped to write with plenty of time to spare here as well!
