Michael Dougherty doesn't have enough after “Godzilla: King Of The Monsters” - and has now revealed that he would like to make another, very special Kaiju film. But first of all, comes “Godzilla Vs. Kong ".
Because of the current situation, more and more filmmakers are taking the opportunity to watch their films again - and also like to chat out of the box. In addition to the "Avengers 4" directors, who just revealed that one of their heroes was originally supposed to turn out to be an infinity stone, there was also a watch party with "Godzilla: King Of The Monsters" and Michael Dougherty.
Because even if his film was not a mega-hit with a worldwide grossing result of $ 386 million, the director is far from having enough of the Kaijus and would love to travel back in time with his next film about Godzilla and Co. - best of all even at a time before humans populated the earth!

THIS IS THE IDEA BEHIND "GODZILLA B.C."
"Godzilla B.C." would, therefore, play "before Christ", in an ancient world full of monsters. Whereby Dougherty would even want to go one step further - or many steps: "I love the idea that Godzilla and the other titans have existed for thousands if not millions of years and have been the original rulers of the planet," says the director, which would show the logos and images of the titans as an allusion to historical hieroglyphs.
Dougherty imagines something like the modern version of a Ray-Harryhausen film. He already worked on monster films such as "Panic around King Kong" in the 1940s and delivered the visual effects for Desmond Davis ’cult film" Battle of the Titans "in 1981.

THIS IS THE OPPORTUNITY FOR THE FILM
Many Godzilla fans were recently enthusiastic about the brute XXL action in the films of the so-called MonsterVerse but criticized above all the human figures. Well, that's exactly what Dougherty could take out of the equation. The extent to which a feature film can then be realized is another question.
"Godzilla", "Kong: Skull Island" and "Godzilla: King Of The Monsters" were all reasonably successful, but also not mega-hits. "Godzilla Vs. Kong ”was also postponed before the corona crisis (current release date: November 19, 2020) - Warner Bros. doesn't want to take too many risks with the monster saga at the moment.

It can, therefore, be assumed that you will first have to wait until you meet King Kong before you put any more time and money into other ideas. But who knows, maybe one of them is really a prehistoric Godzilla film - that would be something!
