Principal photography for Kaiju Gaiden took place in Japan over 12 days in October 2014.[3] A Kickerstarter for the film run by director David Hall launched on September 28 and concluded on November 12, raising $30,591. The film was originally scheduled to premiere at the BAL Theatre in San Leandro, California, on June 20, 2015.

On January 20, 2016, producer Mark Jaramillo removed Hall from the project, citing his inability to pay the film's staff, mail rewards to the Kickstarter backers, or produce "10 seconds of edited footage."[4] Hall released a trailer the same day, claiming Kaiju Gaiden was "98 percent finished."[5] The fate of the other two percent is unknown, as he has not updated the film's Kickstarter since August 1, 2016.

In 2017, Jaramillo returned to Japan to shoot additional interviews, and released his own trailer for the film at G-Fest XXIV on July 15, 2017.

What the hell is going on with its info?! Is it in limbo, or is it one of those “G-FEST ONLY” kind of things?

It's just taking a while. Having a director turn out to be a conman will do that.

Ah, the comments section, where I no longer have to be objective! What an absolute clusterfuck of a project. But hey, with Hall finally content to disappear into the night with all that unaccounted-for money, we're closer than ever to actually seeing it.
