Godzilla 2 moves forward with Krampus Writers

The upcoming sequel to Legendary studios 2014 Godzilla reboot, appears to be moving forward despite being dangerously close to falling into development hell. After original director Gareth Edwards left the project, there have been big question marks over who will take over writing and directing duties, pushing back the release date to 2019.

However, an answer has been found! Michael Dougherty and Zach Shields have just been signed up to write the movie, with Dougherty heavily rumoured to assume the directors chair as well. This is very reassuring as I had feared the sequel would suffer from the personnel changes and Krampus (2015), as well as Trick r Treat (2007), was an instant cult hit. As long as the duo can adapt from seasonal anthologies to giant monster movies, the King of the monsters will be in very good hands.

What do you think of the news? How do you think the sequel will differ as a result?
