And it's Monsters director Gareth Edwards.

Get yourself a major motion picture deal and you too can look as smug as this man!

The 35 year old Brit has ONLY made Monsters, which was a fantastic exercise in atmosphere and - with Edwards taking care of the special effects himself amongst many other aspects of production - pushed the envelope of low-budget film-making. Take a look at it here:

Although it didn't quite compete with Cloverfield or District 9 as some imagined it would, Monsters definitely accomplished a lot in visual terms, and wrapped up quite nicely. It did, however, leave quite a lot to be desired as far as the characters were concerned, especially considering that they were ultimately the focus of the creature feature. That could have had something to do with the fact that Edwards also wrote the movie himself and much of the dialogue was improvised, which is unlikely to be the case with Godzilla, a remake of the 1954 Japanese daikaju classic.

What do you think, is Edwards a good choice for the movie? I'm still hoping he can join the little sci-fi renaissance Duncan Jones, Joseph Kosinski and Neill Blomkamp seem intent on starting, he certainly has the buzz behind him.

I hope someone else has the script cause he can't write an interesting character to save his life. Also, so far he's batting zero in the "preachy" department.

But yeah, his VFX were stunning and if he keeps the current trend of docu-style it should work well with the material.

It CAN'T be any worse than the last one.

I loved the experience of watching Cloverfield in the cinema so if this taps into any of that I'm first in line.
