Filmmaker Adam Wingard, out doing promotional rounds for the upcoming “Death Note” film on Netflix, has spoken a bit about his in the works next project – the big-budget “Godzilla vs. Kong” film at Warner Bros. Pictures.
He reveals to Screen Crush that his biggest goal with the film is to get people being moved and sympathetic towards the monster characters in between all the kaiju-on-kaiju action:
“It’s a massive monster brawl movie. There’s lots of monsters going crazy on each other, but at the end of the day I want there to be an emotional drive to it. I want you to be emotionally invested in them. I think that’s what’s going to make it cool…
I really want you to take those characters seriously. I want you to be emotionally invested, not just in the human characters, but actually in the monsters. If I had my way, I want people to really be teary-eyed at the end of the movie, and be that invested in to what’s going on.”
“Godzilla vs. Kong” is currently targeting a 2020 release and will follow after the “Godzilla” sequel which filmmaker Michael Dougherty is currently directing.
