nacho vigalondoThis may be the best news you hear all weekend, and you might not even know why. Spanish filmmaker Nacho Vigalondo isn’t about to let the likes of Guillermo del Toro and Gareth Edwards have all the fun when it comes to giant monsters, and plans to make a kaiju movie of his very own.

In certain circles, Vigalondo is fairly well known, but he’s far from a household name for general audiences in the U.S. He’s contributed segments to horror anthologies like The ABC’s of Death and VHS: Viral, but he’s probably most widely recognized for his 2007 sci-fi thriller Timecrimes. His most recent offering, Open Windows with Elijah Wood and Sasha Grey, got high marks coming out of the recent Fantastic Fest, and I saw him at the Seattle International Film Festival a few years back talking about his alien invasion rom-com Extraterrestrial, which is also great.
