Collider asked Borenstein about the status of the Godzilla sequel at the 2015 Television Critics Association press tour, where the screenwriter has been promoting the upcoming Minority Report TV series (which he wrote the pilot episode for). Borenstein said he’s currently working on the Godzilla 2 screenplay, which he teased as follows:
No, I’m doing it. 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.
Edwards is currently in production on Lucasfilm’s first Star Wars Anthology (read: spinoff) film, Star Wars: Rogue One, but he’s already lined up the Godzilla sequel as his followup project. Borenstein also told Collider that he’s looking forward to working with the director again, now that they’ve built a firm foundation for the King of Monsters’ next big screen appearance to build upon:
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. One of the fun things about that experience is the same fun that it’s been on [Minority Report], where you really get to have your fingers in the pie.
