Godzilla 2 & Godzilla 3 planned, Gareth Edwards involved
It seems Legendary isn't just making one Godzilla sequel - it wants a Godzilla 3 as well...
Last night, news broke that Godzilla director Gareth Edwards has landed the job of directing one of Lucasfilm's planned Star Wars prequels. And that's instantly raised questions as to whether Edwards will be remaining involved in Godzilla 2.
Well, as it turns out, not only is Edwards still attached to Godzilla 2, but Legendary Pictures has a trilogy planned, as Godzilla 3 is on the cards as well.
Legendary Pictures CEO Thomas Tull, speaking to ShockTillYouDrop, said that "the plan has always been for Gareth to direct a different film before we started on another Godzilla, but who knew it would be a Star Wars installment? We have a great plan in store for Godzilla fans and I am looking forward to seeing Gareth’s imprint on the Star Wars universe".
We suspect that Godzilla 2, if Edwards directs, won't be around until 2018. But we wait to hear more about it...
