‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ isn’t the only new ‘Star Wars’ project with an official release date: there’s also the spin-off, which is being helmed by ‘Godzilla’ director Gareth Edwards. And just like ‘The Force Awakens,’ the untitled spin-off has just lost its first writer as Gary Whitta has departed the project for reasons unknown. The standalone project, which has been rumored as a heist film featuring Boba Fett, is set to hit theaters in 2016, but will have to find a new writer quickly if it wants to keep that release date.

Perhaps this time we will let "our hero" Godzilla get some actual rest before dispatching him to battle the world's other major MUTOs? Is that too much to ask? We've known for months that Legendary is eager to stay in the 'Godzilla' business after the success of this summer's awesome Gareth Edwards' feature film -- after all, they did announce a sequel to the film within days of it hitting the big screen -- but there have been plenty of lingering questions as to when that would happen and who (or what) we could expect to see in the next feature.

In a move that surprised no one after the weekend box office report, 'Godzilla 2' is already in the works and we couldn't be more excited. Director Gareth Edwards' take on the iconic monster is one of the most beautiful and refreshing summer movies in a long time, bending over backwards to build tension and tease the the audience before unleashing a monster mash of a climax that has to be seen to be believed. Of course we want 'Godzilla 2.' We wanted a 'Godzilla 2' the moment the credits rolled.
Of course, there's one big important question: which monster(s) would Godzilla fight in the sequel?

Godzilla roars – ROARS! – back onto your local movie screens this weekend in a movie titled ‘Godzilla.’ Earlier this week, we were fortunate enough to speak with the title character in ‘Godzilla,’ Godzilla – who now has starred in 30 live-action films (that’s more than Jason Segel) -- and talk about his role as Godzilla in ‘Godzilla’ and what his future plans might be.

'Godzilla' Director Gareth Edwards on Fat Godzilla, the Iconic Roar and the Easter Egg You Definitely Missed

Gareth Edwards is exhausted. As 'Godzilla' prepares to open in theaters this week, it marks the end of a four-year journey for the British director. After getting some insight into his production schedule and doing a little math, we calculated that Edwards worked over 13,500 hours making 'Godzilla'. If you worked a normal 40-hour work week, that's over six years of work, and Edwards did that in just two years of filming and post-production. It's an interesting shift for a director who got his start in the business by winning a film challenge where a movie had to be created, start-to-finish, in just two days.
Go Gareth Edwards is tired, but, as he notes, he's certainly not complaining ("The sound of someone complaining about directing 'Godzilla'...that's a guy you want to punch in the face."). The good news for Edwards is, the work has paid off, with this trilling new 'Godzilla' movie. We caught up with Edwards recently in New York City to talk about his lack of sleep, what specific sounds made up Godzilla's new roar and the many easter eggs he has hidden throughout the movie.

Warner Bros. recently screened 'Godzilla,' the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot of the Toho classic, for select members of the press (insert self-congratulatory back pat). Though the rest of the world still has to wait until the beast stomps into theaters on May 16, the studio released a hefty photo gallery of 29 images (including some behind-the-scenes moments) from the film, in addition to teasing some bits about the future of the franchise.
