DEFINITELY! Rodan is pretty awesome.
The idea probably wouldn't work. Not trying to be all negative, but there's just not a whole lot TO Rodan. I mean, all he is is a giant pterodactyl that flies really fast. No bells and whistles, you could say. I like the idea, but people want more than that to seperate him from just any old run-of-the-mill 50's monster. He WAS cool in his debut film, but he wouldn't work now.
You've seen Mothra, right? There isn't much to that character, either. If she shows up as a larva initially, chances are she'll spin a cocoon and emerge as the giant moth. If she shows up as a moth, she'll die and one or two larva hatch and save the day.
All the 90's managed to do was give her pew-pew lasers or portray the character as a male.
They took a pretty basic character and fleshed it out enough to warrant three decent movies. A similar thing could be done to Rodan.
I'm not saying we need to see something like Armored Rodan or anything, but they could definitely work with the character enough to fill out a decent trilogy.
