“I’m writing it now, and it’s really going to be great. I don’t want to go off book and tell you anything that I’m not allowed to tell you. The response to the first film was really exciting, but now that that world is established, we can do bigger and even better things. We’re really stoked.”
Borenstein also reflected on the relationship between him and Gareth Edwards (Godzilla and who is currently filming Star Wars: Rogue One) and their collaboration. “Yeah, I hope. He’s making Star Wars right now, so he’s a little preoccupied, but yeah. Gareth is amazing. It’s exciting to get to work with him again.

Godzilla 2 is set to be released on June 8, 2018 with both Max Borenstein (Writer) and Gareth Edwards(Director) returning to the Godzilla franchise.
