Max Borenstein to Write GODZILLA Reboot

     November 9, 2011

This summer it was reported that David Goyer would write the Godzilla reboot brewing over at Legendary.  The news gave Matt pause at the time, and I tend to agree.  Goyer is hit (The Dark Knight) or miss (The Unborn), and its not entirely clear how responsible he is for the hits.  We’ll have to find other things to worry about, though, since Heat Vision reports Legendary has hired Max Borenstein to write Godzilla.  Wisely, Borenstein has not yet amassed a series of credits by which Matt and I would judge him.  But you’ll see “Written by Max Borenstein” on a number of films over the next few years.  He just turned in the latest draft of Art of the Steal to producers Zac Efron and Kevin McCormick.  He entered into the Legendary family earlier this year with the assignment to rewrite The Seventh Son.  Last (but certainly not least), Borenstein is working on the Jimi Hendrix biopic Jimi, also for Legendary.  In other words, Borenstein is a fresh up-and-comer, which seems the right fit for director Gareth Edwards, who made waves in 2010 with his microbudget feature debut Monsters.

Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing alongside Dan Lin, Roy Lee, and Brian Rogers.  Warner Bros. will distribute Godzilla as part of their ongoing relationship with Legendary.
