Kaiju Filmography


  • In 2008, Dougherty was attached to direct and co-write the screenplay for Calling All Robots, an animated kaiju film by Disney and ImageMovers Digital.[1] Unfortunately, ImageMovers Digital closed down after the box office failure of Mars Needs Moms in 2011, and Calling All Robots was never made.
