Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures already announced a May 16th, 2014 release date for Godzilla, so we knew filming would have to begin early next year. Now it has been confirmed by cinematographer Seamus McGarvey (The Avengers) during a recent interview.
McGarvey told Collider that filming will start in March, 2013 and should continue until June. The crowd at Comic-Con was blown away by the Godzilla teaser that played this past summer, but that might not be the same visual style used for the final movie: “We still haven’t chosen the direction we’re going visually. I’m sort of testing next week, in fact, for that stuff.”
The last update we had on Godzilla revealed that Iron Man 3 writer Drew Pearce was hired to polish the existing script. Monster‘s Gareth Edwards will be directing the film and, with filming starting early next year, we should have casting news in the very near future.
