‘Godzilla 2’ loses director Gareth Edwards

Godzilla (Gareth Edwards)

The much-touted GODZILLA 2 has lost a director, reports Deadline, as Gareth Edwards makes an amicable split with Legendary Picture and Warner Bros. Edwards had directed the first film, which received mixed reviews, and the sequel was dated this week as landing on 22 March 2019.

It comes hot on the heels of the news that GODZILLA 2 has shifted its originally planned release date of June 2018, but gave a new date for the face-off between titans in Godzilla Vs. Kong, a spin-off from Warner’s upcoming Kong: Skull Island. The showdown will happen on 29 May 2020.

Meanwhile, Edwards preps the release of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, due out 15 December 2016 from Disney. It’s the first live-action spin-off from the Star Wars series that is not a part of the main ‘trilogies’ of continuity.
