Love ADI's creature work! ADI designed the Graboids, the Starship Troopers bugs, and more. They original worked for Stan Winston before breaking off to start ADI. Excited to hear they're working on this.

Both ADI and Legacy are working on KOTm huh. Fitting as both owe everything to Stan Winston who of course was originally gonna work on Tristar's Godzilla before the DeBont-Elliot-Rossio script got scrapped.

Overall, the cast is looking pretty l33t. Lot of good monster movie pedigrees being represented. Let's hope they can solve the riddle of how best to design the new KG better than any of us have thus far.

Cry about something important, because KOTM's crew just shrunk back to #100 with the DELETION of the great Harry-Gregson Williams.

BREAKING DAVID FINCHER TO DIRECT GODZILLA 2!!!!!

LOL @ Lubezki doing a Godzilla film. Can you not sniff-out the fanwankery IMDB uploads? If that was true major trades would be all over the news.

Same goes for Giacchino, except for the fact that he's AWFUL. People did the exact thing with the 2014 Godzilla. Here's his tweet on the matter:
https://twitter.com/m_giacchino/status/ ... 9759909888

Guy doesn't have a creative note in his head. The backbone of his career is jocking guys like Goldsmith and Williams and remixing their themes. Obviously, I get the appeal in wanting him to do the same with Ifukube, but let's get some real talent.

#108. Giacchino has denied involvement on twitter. Nothing else has happened, so we'll continue to see what develops.
