One of the quietest, yet most satisfying movie surprises of 2010 was Gareth Edward’s breathtaking little art film about giant monsters along the Mexican/US border, Monsters. Even more impressive is the fact that Monsters was Edward’s first feature film directorial credit, and it was done on a rumored $15,000.
Now, HeatVision is reporting that Edwards is closing a deal with Legendary Pictures to develop and direct their remake of the creature feature classic Godzilla. Hollywood is just going crazy about the promising director, enthusiastic about his skill of making authentically soulful film on a shoestring budget. It’s easy to understand the comparisons to Neill Blomkamp. Read our review of Monsters here.
