Are there enough Kaiju films out there? We have two in the mix as we speak with Godzilla and Pacific Rim. But is there enough room for one more that pretty much has the same premise as the latter? Monsterpocalypse has been on the back-burner for a while now, even having Tim Burton on its manifest at its beginning. Interestingly enough that he’s been associated with both Godzilla and Pacific Rim at one point or the other. PR was put into motion at about the same time as well, so it’s strange this would even see the light of day. Nevertheless it’s engines have restarted with Fede Alvarez coming on board. His previous work being 2013’s Evil Dead. Rodo Sayagues will co-write the film with him hoping to distinguish it from the Burton’s original iteration and PR.
I’m thinking this will be either as eventful as an Emmerich-Irwin Allen adventurpocalypse, or take the reigns away from PR in any interest. Anyway, it’s a wait and see. This is based on a boardgame if anyone was wondering.
