Chinese film director Zhang Yimou has heaped praise on Gareth Edwards, the director of the latest Hollywood adaption of Godzilla.

The "House of Flying Daggers" director spoke with Edwards for about an hour at the film's Chinese premiere in Beijing last night. He said he likes the direction that he took.

"The monster in 'Godzilla' is really massive, and it looks different from the original version. Visually the film director is really imaginative and he really brings something new to the character."

Zhang also disclosed for the first time in public that he is set to direct Hollywood movie "the Great Wall". The sci-fi action film will be completely in English but Chinese elements will be at the forefront.

"Godzilla" is just Edward's second film, after Monsters (2010) and will be released in China on Friday.
