Toho To Produce First New Godzilla Film In A Decade

Godzilla-Classic-TohoThis is a story that is going to make my 9 year-old friend Braeden very happy.

Ten years after Godzilla: Final Wars, Toho is set to begin production on a new Godzilla movie next year with a release planned in 2016. After Final Wars netted only $12 million, the company decided to put the character on the shelf. But now, inspired by the $525 million made by Gareth Edwards' 2014 film, Toho has started a Godzilla Strategic Conference of studio executives and directors in an attempt to reboot the brand.

This will be the 28th film since the character premiered in 1954.
