Godzilla: King of the Monsters 3-D is an unmade 1983 American Godzilla film.

History

In 1983, Steve Miner proposed to make and direct an American Godzilla film, and Toho approved of the plan. Toho agreed to let Miner develop a conceptualization of his film and begin seeking for backing from Hollywood studios. Miner started by hiring Fred Dekker to write a screenplay and William Stout to develop concept sketches. Stout based his Godzilla design on a prototype developed and constructed by paleontologist Steve Czerkas and even made a teaser poster for the film, depicting Godzilla spitting atomic breath on the Golden Gate Bridge. Dave Stevens developed numerous storyboards based on the Godzilla designs.

Miner contacted some of the biggest names in Hollywood special effects at the time. Many of them were invited to a special screening of the original Japanese version of Godzilla. Rick Baker was contacted to develop an animatronic Godzilla head for close-up shots, and Jim Danforth was set to animate stop motion, with David Allen set to head the animation team. Bids were also requested from ILM and Dream Quest.

Miner also wanted to do this film in 3D. Although producers like Jon Peters and Keith Barish expressed interest in the film, Miner's projected budget of $30 million drove the studios away. The big Hollywood studios refused to spend so much money on what they considered a "children's film." By the end of 1984, Miner finally gave up trying to get the film into production. In the meantime, Toho had revived the franchise themselves by producing The Return of Godzilla, the first Godzilla film in nine years.

The only monsters in this film would have been Godzilla and a juvenile member of his species.
