Michael Dougherty involved in new Godzilla???

A little while ago I posted a news item stating that Legendary Pictures was possibly going to restart the Godzilla franchise with a new American made and released film. While there was no more information than that, we may have another tidbit of info now.

I picked up the new issue of Rue Morgue Magazine this week (which is an amazing issue you should pick it up) and in an article on Michael Dougherty's long awaited film Trick 'R' Treat, was this final paragraph at the end:

"Every project I do goes back to what I was exposed to as a kid: X-Men, Superman, Halloween. I can't elaborate too much on my next film, but I'll just say my other passion growing up was Godzilla. I'm crossing off a checklist that I first wrote when I was about nine."

If both of these things mesh into what I'm thinking, then this will be a dream come true for myself and other Godzilla fans. I can't think of anyone more suited for the project other than Peter Jackson, and let's face it, that would never happen.

I would much rather hear that the Japanese were launching a new Godzilla film.

But maybe Dougherty can git'r done the right way.
