If Clash of the Titans is any indication, we should get something somewhat faithful to Godzilla's source material, at least more so than the Transformers films have been. They kept most of the essential elements of the first Clash of The Titans the same, right down to incorrectly calling the giant monster in it The Krakken, which was a monster from Norse mythology, not Greek and resembles a giant squid. The even kept the anticlimactic ease with which the monster was taken out in the first film.
Then again, they did odd stuff like change who Perseus' origin, involve Hades, made Medusa rather easy on the eyes and made the Krakken look like a cross between Cloverfield and Sin from Final FantasyX. I mean, jerky stop-motion aside, the Krakken from the original film looked like some hellish undersea gargoyle, like what one would expect an aquatic titan to look like. The new one just looks like an alien. Whatever happening to just making stuff look real with better SE? Artistic License I guess.
Legendary did produce the Clash remake, but Godzilla will have a totally different crew behind it. They're the ones who'll make it work or not.
