I just saw this thread and wanted to chime in...

As others have stated here, the most likely answer is "no". Giant monster movies have not been successful at the box office in Japan for many years so the studios are waiting for interest to build again before getting back into that genre. Toho has had several consecutive years of record-breaking box office since they stopped making Godzilla movies, so there's no financial incentive to force another Godzilla movie on an audience that hasn't shown they want one. The 50th anniversary movie bombed so Toho's not going to crank out another one just because the 60th anniversary is coming up.
Many fans repeat and repeat the claim that "Toho said they would make another one in 10 years".... but that's not what Toho said. Some people just misunderstood what producer Shogo Tomiyama said in interviews leading up to GODZILLA: FINAL WARS. Tomiyama was often asked about the future of the Godzilla series, and he mentioned the gap between TERROR OF MECHAGODZILLA and GODZILLA '84 and said he expected a similar stretch of time before the next movie. In one interview he said, “From here on it will be at least 5-10 years before another production”. He also made the statements, "The next Godzilla film will be something created by perhaps a new generation, and I will be in the audience to appreciate it." and "so long as Godzilla keeps fascinating people, I believe he will be resurrected by new generations of filmmakers in the future." At a Tokyo press conference he said "Until there is completely new technology and know-how, we won't be making another Godzilla movie."
of the interviews did he state a new movie would be coming in 2014 (or any other year). And Toho never declared or announced that a new Godzilla movie would be released then, either. The studio doesn't plan movies years in advance... Godzilla's return at Toho would depend on on several factors (box office trends, talent available, customer interest, etc) that can't be predicted 5-10 years ahead. That's just not how they do things.
There's also the deal with Legendary Pictures for a new American GODZILLA movie, and Toho's not going to mess with that because its worth MUCH more money to them than they would make from doing their own film in Japan. While Toho did make GODZILLA 2000 while TriStar's GODZILLA 2 was being developed, one big reason for that was that TriStar was not happy with how the 1998 GODZILLA performed both financially and critically so the release of a sequel was pushed back while they and Centropolis tried to figure how get things back on track (obviously, that didn't happen). That delay left a nice big window for Toho to do their own film, and they took advantage of the opportunity.
Things are different now. Like Arbok wrote, the 1990s Godzilla movies had been box office hits so Toho saw a financial reason to make G2000. There's no such motivation these days.
And early this year, Shozo Watanabe of Toho spelled it out when he said, "Toho does not have a plan to produce or release its own Godzilla movie at present."
Second do you think a new toho series will open up with Gamera vs Godzilla because their were rummors that daie wanted to produce a crossover flim but toho wanted to make final wars and I also heard that daie wanted to sell gamera to toho.
The rumors got a lot of details wrong. Daiei no longer exists... a decade ago they were bought by Kadokawa Publishing and merged into that company's Kadokawa Pictures division. The revivals of the old Daiei franchises like GAMERA THE BRAVE, THE GREAT YOKAI WAR and DAIMAJIN KANON were all made by Kadokawa, and it was Kadokawa who approached Toho about co-producing a "Godzilla vs Gamera" movie in 2002 (not when GFW was in production). Toho said no for several reasons, among them that Toho doesn't want Godzilla sharing the screen with the competition (notice that Godzilla has never done crossovers with non-Toho Japanese franchises), and they don't want to share the profits from a Godzilla movie. Unless that attitude changes, "Godzilla vs Gamera" will always be extremely unlikely of happening.
Kadokawa is a massive and successful corporation so they're not looking to sell off Gamera. And even if they were, Toho's not interested in making giant monster movies these days so they probably wouldn't want to buy Gamera.
