The Walking Dead's Frank Darabont is back for Godzilla
Just when you think everything is going fine with The Walking Dead and Godzilla, chaos ensues.
First The Walking Dead fires its current show runner, then there’s producer infighting on the upcoming Godzilla reboot. So it’s a bit ironic that the original showrunner of Walking Dead, Frank Darabont, is coming in to help Godzilla before he’s ready to stomp again.
But while this battle is building, apparently the script for the film needs a little tweaking before shooting kicks off this Spring. Enter Frank Darabont.
A little bit of trivia you may not know is Darabont penned a script for the fourth Indiana Jones movie, which Spielberg loved but Lucas rejected, not to mention he wrote the best Nightmare on Elm Street movie, Dream Warriors. David Goyer, screenwriter of Batman Begins, Man of Steel, Call of Duty Black Ops 2, and Da Vinci’s Demons, took at pass on the Godzilla script as well.
Variety reports the current #1 choice for Godzilla’s leading man is Henry Cavill, the new Man of Steel. (Thankfully, Cavill has already beat the Superman typecasting curse, but who’s going to be inside the Godzilla suit is the real question).
