Godzilla goes to Canada!
It was previously reported by cinematographer, Seamus Mcgarvey, that the Godzilla 2014 reboot from Legendary Pictures would start filming, "March till June, I think". Now, that's been confirmed by Godzilla 2014's Dan Lin, one of a long line of producers on the film. He said recently in an interview with Collider,
"We’re planning to film in March. We are in deep pre-production. Gareth [Edwards] has really mapped out his vision for the movie, you saw the teaser, but Gareth—thanks to [Legendary CEO] Thomas Tull’s help—he took over a whole stage on the Warner Brothers lot and not only showed the teaser you saw, he had some models built of Godzilla, he had art decorated all over the soundstage, he had pre-vis of some of the big action sequences in the movie."
When asked about locations, he responded,
"Most likely it's filming in Vancouver."
Lin also commented on Director Gareth Edward's previously stated "realistic and grounded" approach,
"So we’re in deep pre-production and Gareth’s vision of the movie is really exciting, it’s a true reboot of Godzilla. And you saw from the Comic-Con footage it is a grounded, realistic version of Godzilla. What would happen if Godzilla came into our world today?"
All this comes as good news, just days after a very "grounded" still shot from the San-Diego's Comic-Con teaser trailer surfaced on Facebook. Personally, I can't wait.
Godzilla opens in theaters May 16, 2014.
