Godzilla Reboot Grounded In Reality

“Monsters” filmmaker Gareth Edwards says a big reason he took on the reboot of the “Godzilla” franchise at Legendary Pictures was to approach the material from a new perspective.

Edwards tells Total Film (via The Coventry Telegraph) that “My main idea was to imagine ‘If this really happened, what would it be like?’ I want to take a grounded, realistic approach to a Godzilla film.”

He adds that “I’ve never worked this hard, this long and been this emotionally involved in something that’s lasted only a few seconds since the time I lost my virginity! But the reaction has been amazing and I can’t wait for the fans to see our final product.”
