Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros have revealed their pick for the director of the tentative "Godzilla 2012" project.

The man responsible for the film will be indie, UK director Gareth Edwards. To date, Edwards' most well known work is his directorial film debut: the 2010 movie Monsters, which garnered good although not great critical acclaim.

By selecting a relative newcomer, Legendary Pictures is taking a slight gamble on the production. However, the choice is not without logic, as Edwards has an extensive background in digital effects which will no doubt come into play when directing and structuring out sequences for the new Godzilla film.
