‘Godzilla’ Reboot Gets a Frank Darabont Rewrite

Frank Darabont will rewrite the Godzilla screenplayThe Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont has been brought on for a final rewrite of the Godzilla screenplay.

David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises), Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son), and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) have previously worked on the script. While the project has gained another writer, it has also lost two producers, Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who initially secured the rights from the Japanese company Toho.

We reported last month that production is scheduled to begin in March, with Gareth Edwards attached to direct. That report revealed this project to be more "grounded" than previous versions.

Frank Darabont has been keeping busy with television projects over the last few years, creating The Walking Dead and his new TNT series L.A. Noir. His last work on the silver screen was Stephen King's The Mist in 2007, which he wrote and directed.

Godzilla was released May 16th, 2014.
