“We’re planning to film in March,” producer Dan Lin told Collider. “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 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. So we’re in deep pre-production and Gareth’s vision of the movie is really exciting it’s a true re-boot 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?”
When asked if the film would take place in any Asian countries he answered, “I don’t want to give any plot details right now; I want you guys to be surprised.”
Edwards will direct from a screenplay originally drafted by David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Max Borenstein (Seventh Son).
