Lesson of American Godzilla Movie To Repeat Itself

The first Godzilla movie is a cautionary tale about how you should not revive radioactive monsters. But they kept doing it, in dozens of Godzilla movies.

Then the American Godzilla movie arrived and it was also a cautionary tale, about how Americans should not make a Godzilla movie.

And once again, the lesson is being ignored. A new Godzilla is in the works, from the makers of the new Clash of the Titans. Here's the press release

One of the producers is Roy Lee, who American-izes Japanese stuff, such as The Ring, and The Grudge. So if you like Sarah Michelle Gellar in your Japanese movie remakes, he's your guy.

Besides him, there are no actors or writers or directors named yet. That takes way more work than pounding out a press release.

They are working with Toho, the original Godzilla makers. I dare to hope that this means an appearance by Jet Jaguar.

In the press release, the producers said, "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see."

I want to see it already. I disregard the ominous warning. It has Godzilla in it, so I must. Curse you, moral of the story!

The spines on the back of RevolutionSF's Joe Crowe light up when he breathes his laser-beam breath.
