ComingSoon.net reports that Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have set a May 16, 2014 release date for Godzilla. That is the same date that Paramount Pictures was planning on releasing director Jonathan Liebesman’s Ninja Turtles, produced by Michael Bay. Will the latter stay in the spot or move? We’ll have to wait and see.
Godzilla is directed by Gareth Edwards, who earned worldwide acclaim for his feature directorial debut, Monsters. Edwards directs from a screenplay by David Callaham (“The Expendables” films), David S. Goyer (the “Dark Knight” trilogy) and Max Borenstein (upcoming The Seventh Son). Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce, along with Roy Lee, Dan Lin and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher will serve as executive producers alongside Doug Davison, Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.
