Cool fact about Godzilla 2000, there was going to be a American made sequel called Godzilla reborn. the story was that Godzilla attacked Hawaii but is knocked out by the army. Turns out he came to Hawaii to fight a lava bat monster, when it emerged from a volcano the army wakes up Godzilla so that he could battle this new foe. Whats great about this is that the film would have used man in a suit style effects and some Toho staff would come over to work on it. The characters would have been light hearted so that the monster fights could be more fun. The actors in mind were Bruce FLIPPING Campbell!!! Jady Lee Curtis, Lenard Nemoye, christepher Lee and many other actors who are known with the Scifi genre. And to put a cherry on top of that sunday, some actors from Godzilla 2000 would also be in it. The budget for this movie would have been small by Hollywood standerds and from what I heard Toho really liked the idea but asked for one major change, that being Godzilla being killed by the army so they changed it to a coma.
Now your probuly wondering why this great idea never got made. Well that's because dispite the budget being small, the higher ups at Sony wasn't into making it. Its a real sham that this movie never got made because it would have redeemed America from that god awful 98 film early, plus im totally pro Bruce Campbell being in anything Godzilla. But instead this really amazing idea that would blend Japanese and amarcian film making became one of the many Godzilla films that never got made. Its more of shame because a lot of people at Sony had great ideas for a American Godzilla film but it instead fell into the hands of a hack who didn't even respect the legacy. But on the bright side the big guy is back in not one but two series, but I hope people learn more about Godzilla reborn so that this amazing idea isn't forgotten.
