Godzilla 2014 Released in 3D and Script Credits

A short article from Stereoscopy News cleared up a few things for me.

First, it confirms that the Godzilla 2014 reboot from Legendary Pictures will be released on May 16, 2014 in 2D and 3D formats. I'm assuming it will be shot in 3D, not simply converted.

Second is about the Godzilla 2014 script and writer credits, but first let me recap who the writers have been.
  1. David Callahan (The Expendables)
  2. David Goyer,  July 2011 (Dark Knight, Man of Steel)
  3. Max Borenstein, November 2011 (The Seventh Son)
  4. Drew Pearce, October 2012 (Iron Man 3) (4 week polish)
  5. Frank Darabont, January 2013 (Shawshank Redemption, Walking Dead)
Max Borenstein will be credited as the main screenwriter with Pearce and Darabont sharing writing credits with him. David Goyer will receive screen story credit.

So, it appears Callahan's draft was abandoned and Goyer came up with the main story idea. Later, Borentein wrote the script being used, with Pearce and Darabont editing and fleshing it out.

Quite a number of scribes for one film, but that's not unusual in Hollywood. Aside from the producer trouble and lawsuit in the news recently, Gareth Edwards has remained the only director and shooting is still scheduled to begin in March 2013, so Legendary better finish this legal trouble and the script and keep on schedule.
