Godzilla vs. Godzilla (ゴジラVSゴジラ,   Gojira tai Gojira) is an unmade 1995 Godzilla film.

Overview

Following the release of Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla in 1994, Toho immediately began work on the next Godzilla film. Due to the impending release of the first American-produced Godzilla film by TriStar Pictures and its potential sequels, Toho decided to bring their series to a temporary close and cease production of Godzilla films until 2005. For the final entry of the Heisei series, Toho decided to tie back to the original 1954 film, pitting Godzilla against the restless spirit of the first Godzilla. Concept art of Godzilla's opponent, Ghost Godzilla, was submitted by Shinji Nishikawa on December 27, 1994.[1] This artwork revealed that in one draft of the film, Ghost Godzilla would possess LittleGodzilla and grow into a reincarnation of the 1954 Godzilla. Concept art for a Heisei version of Anguirus was also included in the book Heisei Godzilla Perfection, and was stated to be commissioned for Godzilla vs. Godzilla. Shinji Nishikawa: Drawing Book of Godzilla also contains concept art for Anguirus, designated "NEW Anguirus" and dated December 22, 1994, and stated to be for Godzilla vs. Godzilla.[1] In another draft for the film, Ghost Godzilla possessed Anguirus instead, creating the new monster dubbed Godzirus. Baragon was also featured in this draft, and would fuse together with Anguirus to become the new monster Baraguirus.[2] Godzilla vs. Godzilla also introduced the concept of the Anguirus Hound, a subspecies of Anguirus which was carried over into Godzilla vs. Barubaroi.

Ultimately, this concept, with different revisions written by Kazuki Omori and Shinji Nishikawa, was discarded because director Takao Okawara felt that a third consecutive film pitting Godzilla against a clone of himself (after Godzilla vs. Mechagodzilla II and Godzilla vs. SpaceGodzilla), would have been "too much."[3] The film was replaced with several other attempted projects, which gradually led to Godzilla vs. Barubaroi, which eventually became Godzilla vs. Destoroyah.

Looking at the movie's title, where two Godzillas fight each other, their suit names would be GojiGoji and GojiGoji, which sounds dumb.

There's a film listed in the concept history titled Godzilla vs. Deep-Sea Life but it doesn't have a page. I would have loved to have seen how boring of a movie that would have been.

the actual thing just sounds like a boring, typical hesei goji flick. deep sea life[yes, that's the monsters name]just looks like if you took godzila's body and put manda's head on it. glad that din't get made.
