That’s right folks, the one time show runner of The Walking Dead and director of The Mist is now taking on Godzilla. He is not directing the big green guy’s film, he is only working on the script. Deadline.com had this to report:
"Frank Darabont, who veered into genre territory by launching the AMC series The Walking Dead, has been hired by producer-financier Legendary Pictures to do a final rewrite on the script that was written by The Seventh Son scribe Max Borenstein”
This comes at almost the eleventh hours as production of the film is to being in March. The film will still be directed Gareth Edwards (Monsters) and has a release date for May 16, 2014.
