During an interview with Collider about the upcoming series Minority Report, writer Max Borenstein gave a bit up an update on Godzilla 2. The screenwriter for the 2014 Godzilla film is already working on the sequel:
No, I’m doing it. I’m writing it now, and it’s really going to be great. I don’t want to go off book and tell you anything that I’m not allowed to tell you. The response to the first film was really exciting, but now that that world is established, we can do bigger and even better things. We’re really stoked.
And what are the possibilities of Garth Edwards returning to direct the sequel now that he is working on Star Wars: Rogue One?
Yeah, I hope. He’s making Star Wars right now, so he’s a little preoccupied, but yeah. Gareth is amazing. It’s exciting to get to work with him again. One of the fun things about that experience is the same fun that it’s been on [Minority Report], where you really get to have your fingers in the pie.
Godzilla 2 is expected in theaters July 8th, 2018.,
