After a "monstrous" opening (the largest of 2014 thus far), Deadline is reporting Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. are developing a sequel to the blockbuster that is Godzilla.
After opening to $103M internationally — the biggest opening of 2014 so far — and grossing $93M domestic stateside this weekend, it should come as no surprise that Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros.‘ are already developing a sequel to the monster hit. It was confirmed to Deadline this morning that a Godzilla sequel is underway. The beast is currently stomping across international markets to take No. 1 spots in most territories.
Not much is known at the moment (obviously), but it should be a safe bet Gareth Edwards will return to direct. What are your thoughts on a sequel? Sound off below!
