Godzilla is preparing to stomp his way back on to the big screen and he's getting some help from the man that brought The Walking Dead to the small screen. Deadline reports that Frank Darabont, who not only helped turn Robert Kirkman's zombie comic series into a television powerhouse, but also wrote and directed films like "The Shawshank Redemption" and "The Green Mile" has been hired to rewrite the upcoming Godzilla reboot. The 'Seventh Son' writer Max Borenstein wrote the original draft of the film, which is scheduled to begin production in March. It's unclear how significant a rewrite Darabont will be taking on, but this news comes just after Hitfix reports the studio is dropping two of the film's producers, Dan Lin and Roy Lee due to their unwillingness to reduce their fees. Not sure how this departure will affect their relationship with Warner Bros, considering Lin is also working on their planned Justice League movie. Unlike Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, Godzilla is taking a gritty, realistic approach putting the giant lizard anti-hero into the present day. Monsters director Gareth Edwards is helming the project for a planned May 16th, 2014 release. So what do you think of Darabont taking on the Godzilla script? Do you think it attests to the studio's commitment to making the film great or does it suggest the film could be in serious trouble? We'd love to hear your thoughts below of over on Twitter @ClevverMovies. I'm Aja Dang in Hollywood, thanks for watching!
