From the archive - Mortonosaurus vs Godzilla
Came across this last month, I figured as we were celebrating a local monster this month, I'd share it.
The letter really only gives a flavour of the whole "high concept" proposal...which was basically that Godzilla would attack Greenock and that our hometown hero and team mascot Mortonosaurus would have fought him across the town, eventually pitching him into the river where he would have been finished off by a sea serpent. Boof.
I like to think it would have turned out a bit like the Beatie Boys "intergalactic" video.
Sadly...despite this declaration of support (or at least, not total derision) from Morton, we never got this past the script stage. Shame.
