August reported this, and it's very interesting. I'm one of those few people who don't think "Legendary" lives up to it's name at all, so it's not any kind of big news to me at all.
in fact, I'd like to see it delayed for a while, like forever, since all this new movie will do is make people make fun of the old movies (see the new Star Trek movie for example, or better, don't see it). they will laugh about the effects, dubbing, acting, "cardboard" cities and all the other stuff.
this battle between producers, lawyers and studios will be more interesting than the movie itself. I'd like to be wrong, but I'm not going to hold my breath.
