Like a monster through a city, major shifts are happening in the world of Godzilla. The film, which premiered concept footage at Comic-Con in July and will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters), is already set with a May 16, 2014 release date. Now, two of the film’s major producers – Dan Lin and Roy Lee — have left the project. In addition, Oscar-nominated writer/director Frank Darabont (The Shawshank Redemption, The Walking Dead) has been brought on to do a final rewrite. Both of those things are happening just weeks before the film is set to start shooting in March. There are more details after the jump.
