'Godzilla' Gets New Writer, Producer
Published: 01/08/2013 02:03am
Legendary Pictures has brought in a high profile writer and is swapping out producers in a major shake-up of its Godzilla feature, which is to start shooting in March (see "'Godzilla' to Start Shooting in March"), according to Deadline.
Frank Darabont, the Oscar-nominated (Green Mile, Shawshank Redemption) showrunner for the first season of The Walking Dead, has been assigned to rewrite the script.
Warner-based producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who originally brought the project to Legendary, are being bought out of their contracts and Mary Parent, a Pacific Rim producer, has been brought in to replace them.
