‘Godzilla’ sequel on the way, Warner Bros. reports

With a giant $93 million roar at the Box Office this weekend from “Godzilla,” of course there’s a monster sequel planned! Deadline broke the news on Sunday, stating that Warner Bros. has committed to a second “Godzilla.”

The monster movie debuted with $38.5 million on opening day, a very nice sum for not being a sequel. CinemaBlend reports that this is the best debut gross of the year. Another record broken by the King of Monsters is the second highest weekend gross of the year, only behind the $95 million gross of “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” So of course Warner Bros. is eager for more.

“Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.’ are already developing a sequel to the monster hit,” the source writes. “It was confirmed to Deadline this morning that a ‘Godzilla’ sequel is underway.”

Plans for a sequel are still fresh to the table though, no director, actors, or even a plot have been discussed. CinemaBlend assumes that Gareth Edwards will return to the director’s seat, but nothing official has surfaced.

While more monsters are coming, Legendary and Warner Bros. do not own the rights to Godzilla’s enemies – Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah – so we can’t wait to see what they come up with. Funny how the world of movies works, you have to own the rights to each character.

Deadline does repot though that Edwards has talked about where he would take a “Godzilla” sequel if he were attached to the project. Edwards shared that he would use the same kind of restraint that he did for “Godzilla.”

What movie did you watch this weekend? “Godzilla” made it to the number one spot effortlessly, followed by “Neighbors” and “The Amazing Spider-Man 2.” It’s setting the bar high for upcoming summer flicks.
