The title for the first new Japanese Godzilla film in twelve years was officially announced last week at a press conference. The new film will be entitled ‘Shin Godzilla’ and according to Hideaki Anno, the chief director of the film, ‘Shin’ can be interpreted three different ways: ‘new’, ‘true’, and ‘God’. It is interesting to note that Anno’s forthcoming final Evangelion film also bears ‘Shin’ (written in the same Katakana as used in the Godzilla title) as part of the title. Toho also announced the three principle cast members of the film: Hiroki Hasegawa, Yutaka Takenouchi, and Satomi Ishihara. Hasegawa and Ishihara were both previously cast in director Shinji Higuchi’s two-part film adaptation of the Attack on Titan manga series.
Despite these new announcements, there is still very little known about the new Godzilla movie which is currently filming in Japan other than that it will feature the largest version of Godzilla yet seen. The official site for the film has also opened and you can visit it by following the link below!
