Japan Times: Japan's New Godzilla Will Not Be Cuddly or Kitschy

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.

Shooting of Toho's Godzilla movie begins next month, mostly at Toho Studios in the Setagaya section of Tokyo.
