Legendary Pictures, which previously collaborated with Warner Bros. on movies included "The Dark Knight," "300" and "The Hangover," is set to work together again in co-producing and co-financing for "Godzilla" feature.

Legendary Pictures' chairman and CEO Thomas Tull announced the return of "Godzilla" movie franchise after the company obtained feature rights from Japan's Toho Co., which has produced 28 "Godzilla" movies. Toho will release the movie in Japan.

A director for the movie will be announced soon by Legendary.

Dan Lin, Roy Lee and Brian Rogers will produce the movie, while Yoshimitsu Banno, Kenji Okuhira and Doug Davison will executive produce.

Tull was quoted as saying, "Godzilla is one of the world's most powerful pop culture icons, and we at Legendary are thrilled to be able to create a modern epic based on this long-loved Toho franchise. Our plans are to produce the Godzilla that we, as fans, would want to see. We intend to do justice to those essential elements that have allowed this character to remain as pop-culturally relevant for as long as it has."
