Even though the ‘90s reboot nearly killed the character’s legacy forever, studios have still been trying to get yet another new version of Godzilla off the ground in recent years. And it looks like it’s finally happening over at Warner Brothers as its new version of the mountainous lizard franchise finally has an official release date. According to Coming Soon, Godzilla will hit theaters on May 16, 2014.

The movie will be directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) with a script by David Callaham, David S. Goyer, and Max Borenstein. Godzilla will be sharing the same release date now with the upcoming Ninja Turtles relaunch at Paramount, so it will be interesting to see if either movie is moved to another weekend.
