Guillermo Del Toro Won’t Even Read That Damn Godzilla Script

“I am not involved in Godzilla at all, I haven’t read it or plan to read it. Nor have I been approached to direct it.” That’s the statement director and all-around jolly guy Guillermo Del Toro gave to HitFix this morning, a day after Latino Review quite loudly exclaimed that he was in line to take a run at a new version of Godzilla. The project, based on a Travis Beacham spec script called Pacific Rim, is currently being set up at Legendary Pictures. Chances are that Del Toro showed up on a wish list somewhere, leading to a zealous scoopster moment. That, or everyone is lying to us. Which is entirely possible. Trust no one, we always say.

That said, a Guillermo Del Toro Godzilla is an interesting proposition. As is a Guillermo Del Toro Hobbit movie, a Guillermo Del Toro Frankenstein movie, and even that Lovecraft adaptation At the Mountains of Madness. (Note: That last one still might happen.)
