Gareth Edwards made a big impression with his directorial debut of Monsters last year, with Edwards writing, directing, shooting and designing the effects on a budget of $15,000 dollars. Edwards was quickly hired to direct an adaptation of Godzilla, which means he won't be directing the sequel to his debut movie.
Screen Daily reports that British distributor Vertigo Films is developing a Monsters sequel with Edwards serving as executive producer. Directors Brent Bonacorso and Jesse Atlas, who previously worked on short movies together, will helm the sequel, which Monsters producer Allan Niblo revealed would have "lots more creatures" than the original.

We wouldn’t have done [a sequel] if we didn’t find the right talent [in Bonacorso and Atlas]. Gareth loves their vision. People want to see more of this world.
