Max Borenstein set to write Godzilla sequel

Max Borenstein clearly has a thing for raging gigantic beasts. He was one of the main credited writers on Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros' Godzilla and was recently announced as the screenwriter for Legendary's stab at the King Kong mythology, Skull Island. So it probably shouldn't come as much of a surprise that he is also set to write the Godzilla sequel, taking aim at a 2018 release date.

Given that distant release date, it's not surprising that very little is known about the film yet. But with Gareth Edwards once more in the director's chair, there have been hints that classic Godzilla botherers Mothra, Rodan and Ghidorah will be the big threats this time around.

Of course, one of the big complaints about this year's outing for the giant creature was the lack of much action from the big guy himself. Hopefully that will be rectified in the sequel.

Despite his seemingly busy schedule, Borenstein should certainly have time to write both Skull Island – which recently scored Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings Of Summer) to direct and Tom Hiddleston (Thor: The Dark World) to star – and Godzilla 2, while Edwards himself develops one of the Star Wars spin-off films.
