Max Borenstein new writer on Godzilla 2014

It was announced earlier this week that Legendary Pictures has hired, yet again, a new writer for its Godzilla 2014 reboot. Max Borenstein has been brought in to pen the new script. This makes writer number 3 and counting. Borenstein replaces David Goyer, number 2, who took over from David Callahan, number 1. Borenstein's resume includes, Art of the Steal for Warner Bros., the Jimi Hendrix's biopic, Jimi, currently in development, and the upcoming supernatural fantasy, The Seventh Son, both by Legendary.

Personally, I feel Borenstein's is a bit of a step down from David Goyer, who was a heavy hitter in screenwriting, having written all of Legendary's Batman films. Only time will tell. Godzilla 2014's director Gareth Edwards is also relatively inexperienced. The main question on fans' minds is what kind of story will it be? Previously, it was rumored the story would be mixed with an abandoned monster movie script, Pacific Rim. There is speculation it will be a remake along the lines of the original Gojira in 1954, but Brian Rogers, the films producer has previously said that Godzilla would fight one or more monster opponents. Today's fans really want to see a Godzilla truer to the Japanese character and Legendary has stated from the beginning, they want to distance themselves from the disastrous 1998 Godzilla film by Sony. Seeing Godzilla battle other monsters would be a bigger draw. Toho Studios is apparently keeping a very close eye on this production and it was rumored they even insisted Godzilla by played by an actor in a suit rather than a CGI monster, not likely. We'll see if Borenstein can produce a winning story and stay on the job longer than his predecessors.
