Gareth Edwards Talks About Returning for a Sequel to Massive Monster Hit Godzilla
More monsters please

In case you haven't heard - Godzilla destroyed all comers at the box offfice this weekend, putting it on track to be one of the biggest earners of the year.

It's a big success for studio Warner Bros and a validation for their choice of unproven director Gareth Edwards. With only indie sci-fi Monster under his belt, the English filmmaker was far from an obvious choice to bring the king of the monsters back to the big screen. But audiences have really responded to his movie, partly because of the focus on human characters in the midst of all this chaos.

Naturally with box office attention comes sequel talk and the studio has already been mentioning their plans. As for Edwards himself, he's been pretty clear about the nature of Godzilla as a franchise - it's been around for 60 years. But will he return and what does he see in the future for the series?

"Iwould be honoured to have the opportunity to play in this sandpit again." he said during a recent interview. And as for exactly what he would hope to explore, he basically thinks the possibilities are endless: "I feel like there’s just so many ideas that you can’t fit into one film, so many moments. I’d love the film to be enough of a success that someone wanted to do it."

At this point, it seems like a foregone conclusion that Godzilla will get a sequel of some sort. Are you ready for more from this king of the Lizards?

Godzilla is cinemas now, read more from Gareth Edwards here.
