Hideaki Anno and Shinji Highuchi to make Godzilla movie

I think this is really cool news (and no, it's not an April Fool's Day joke):

For a little taste of what it may be like, have a look at this short film Anno and Higuchi made together a few years ago:

Jurassic Park in a few months
Two Attack on Titan films from Japan later this year (also by Shinji Higuchi)
Toho's Godzilla in 2016
Kong: Skull Island in 2017
Pacific Rim 2 in 2017
Legendary Pictures' Godzilla 2 in 2018

... plus possible new Gamera film, probable new Ultraman film, maybe a remake of The Blob, The Leviathan (based in a neat proof-of-concept teaser released online) has been greenlit.

Giant monsters are not only back on, they're back with a vengeance! I don't know how or why it's happening, I'm just glad it is.
