Godzilla In The News 04/19/10 - Obama Worried Jolly Green Giant/Godzilla Conflict Could Destabilize Region

Written By: Ken Hulsey

Okay, from the headline above I'm sure that you have come to the conclusion that today's Godzilla news feed is not to be taken seriously.

Since it is Monday, and you are probably a little bit down about having to going back to work, I thought it would be nice to inject some humour into this, oh so serious blog.

Thankfully, Frog-rotta (not the writer's real least, I don't think so?) over at "The Spoof" was able to provide just what I was looking for.

Now, before I get into this, I want to chastise a select few of you, and you know who you are. In doing some prep work for this piece, I could not find one "Godzilla vs The Jolly Green Giant" pic. Not one!

Come on people! I can't believe that no one could photoshop a "G vs Jolly Green" photo? I found pictures of Godzilla fighting girls in bikinis, Godzilla fighting Obama, Godzilla fighting peoples' pets, Godzilla vs football players, Hockey players, you name it. Yet, not one versus the big green corporate mascot of the Green Giant food company.

What, did it never occur to any of you? Were you afraid of the wrath of "Little Green Sprout"?

I am disappointed.

Oh well, enough of this banter, it's time to get to the article.

Jolly Green Giant battles Godzilla in the Sea of Japan

The Sea of Japan: Disoriented from the gigantic volcanic ash cloud spreading over Europe the Jolly Green Giant some how got lost and wound up in the Sea of Japan accidentally stepping on the dwelling place of the fabled Japanese Dragon monster Godzilla.

The rumblings must of infuriated the the giant lizard because the two are now face to face in what seems to be some sort of mixed martial arts battle to the death.

Tsunamis are being reported as far away as Hawaii and cooked spinach as far away as Mongolia. The United Nation security council is demanding Japan put a stop to the battle Immediately.Japan has refused to comply.

Germany is Accusing Japan of showing favoritism towards Godzilla and is now sending an envoy to the region which includes fighter jets to make sure there is no fowl play from the Japanese.

Burbank, CA – March 29, 2010 – Legendary Pictures announced today that they will develop and produce a new film based on Toho Company’s famed GODZILLA character. Through the terms of the agreement, Legendary Pictures has acquired the rights to produce a movie inspired by Toho’s Godzilla, a franchise the Japanese company created and has nurtured for over fifty years.

Toho’s GODZILLA franchise boasts one of the most widely recognized film creatures worldwide, resulting in a series of books, television programs, video games and more than 25 films worldwide. Legendary intends to approach the film and its characters in the most authentic manner possible. The company will, in the near future, announce a filmmaker to helm the film for an intended 2012 release. The film will fall under the company’s co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Toho will distribute the film in Japan."

"Godzilla" is coming back -- this time, with Legendary Pictures taking the lead, co-producing and co-financing with Warner Bros. for release in 2012.

Legendary announced Monday it had obtained rights to the iconic monster character from Japan's Toho Co., which has overseen more than 25 "Godzilla" films. Toho will release the pic in Japan.

Legendary said it's planning to announce a director shortly.

In addition to Legendary, producers on the new film will be Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers. Yoshimitsu Banno, Kenji Okuhira and Doug Davison will exec produce.

"Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise," said Thomas Tull, Chairman and CEO of Legendary. "Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."

Legendary noted the film will fall under its co-production and co-financing deal with Warner Bros. Legendary's productions with Warners have included "The Dark Knight," "300" and "The Hangover."

Speculation about a new "Godzilla" has been active since last summer. The Bloody Disgusting web site reported in August that the project was in development.
