New ‘Godzilla’ Film Announced by Japanese Studio Toho, The Japanese Studio That Produced the Original Film


Toho, the studio that produced the original 1954 Gojira (later retitled Godzilla) and released more than two dozen films in the franchise, has announced they will be releasing a new Godzilla movie in 2016. This will be the studio’s first Godzilla film since the 2004 movie Godzilla: Final Wars. An employee of Toho told The Hollywood Reporter that the success of Legendary Pictures’ 2014 Godzilla (previously) made for very good timing to revive the franchise in Japan.

The studio has yet to announce details about the production, but it is expecting to begin filming in the summer of 2015.
