Godzilla

In a recent interview with JoBlo, Godzilla: King of the Monsters director Mike Dougherty stated he’s potentially interested in directing a prehistoric entry in the giant monster franchise.

I like the idea of going back in time and telling creatures’ stories from different eras. Skull Island was set in the ’70s, but personally I’d like to do ‘GODZILLA B.C.,’ go back to ancient times and really see the Ray Harryhausen-esque world where primitive humans had to try to survive with these creatures. Maybe we’d get to see the first time mankind truly encountered Godzilla, and get to see how that relationship was christened.
