They wanted a fresh perspective...
IGN has posted a video interview with Godzilla producer Thomas Tull who explained why director Gareth Edwards was hired for the film. He said that Edwards offered a "fresh perspective" and convinced producers with his visual designs.
Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Tull both said that the film is darker in tone, similar to the original 1954 film Gojira. Edwards himself he had some restraint in showing off Godzilla to build tension.
