Hot Off The Press! Page 77 Of Todd Tennant's "Godzilla 1994" Online Comic

Last week I posted some great new artwork from Todd Tennant's "Godzilla 94" online comic, based on Tristar's unused script by Rossio and Elliott, and the fans here, and over at the Facebook group, went gaga.

I mean, they really liked it! Both Todd and I were swamped with e-mails and posts filled with appreciation and praise, along with others wanting to know more about the project.

Todd was more than a little thankful.

Thanks to all the positive response, he has opted to bless us with the newest page from "Godzilla 94", electing to have it premiere here, even before it is added to the "Godzilla 94" website.

If you recall, I mentioned that there was a possibility that Blue Water Comics may be able to publish Todd's "G94" work in graphic novel form. Though I am sworn to secrecy at this point, I will mention that there are 'things' happening on that front, but I can't be specific.

Just keep hoping and praying that things work out. Todd appreciates all the support!

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.
