The Japan Times has posted an article featuring the director of the new Toho Godzilla movie, Shinji Higuchi.
According to the article:
Radiation-breathing Godzilla destroyed so many cities and fought so many monsters, the original Japanese film series outgrew its budget and audience.
Shinji Higuchi, the director and special-effects whiz chosen by Toho Co. for the made-in-Japan revival of the series, plans to go back to the basics for the new installment, while still looking to surprise.
Higuchi is hoping to one-up last year’s Hollywood version, with not only the biggest Godzilla yet, but one that takes up challenges previous ones haven’t attempted.
