Exciting news for giant lizard fans everywhere. Toho Studios has announce that they are going to gear up in the summer of 2015 and produce another Japan based version of the might beast – the first since 2004 when Toho brought us ‘Godzilla: Final Wars’.
Did the huge success of Warner Bros. ‘Godzilla’ this past summer have anything to do with Toho’s decision? You bet your fire breathing lizard it did and bring it on I say. No such thing as too much Godzilla.
According to THR production is slated to gear up in the summer of 2015 for a release sometime in 2016. That could be interesting as WB and Legendary Pictures have already announced a sequel to this past summer hit with a release date of Dec. 2016.
Looking like 2016 could be the year of the lizard.
If Toho gears up in the summer as planned that would be the 29th film in the long running franchise.
