Gareth Edwards leaves Godzilla 2

Filmmaker Gareth Edwards (Monsters) has dropped out of directing the sequel to Godzilla 2014.

Edwards who directed the first reboot was meant to return to Godzilla after completing his work on Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which is in post- production.

As to why, it remains unclear. Although reports say deadlines could have impinged the project.

As to who? That’s certainly the question. The hunt is on. We will keep you posted though.

Godzilla 2 is targeting a March 22nd 2019 release.
