After making a monstrous entrance at Comic-Con this past summer, mum’s been the word on Gareth Edward’s GODZILLA. A lot was made of it, but we still have a long time before anything more. That being said, producer Dan Lin got to chatting a bit about it, giving us the first bread crumbs we’ve had in awhile.
“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 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? I don’t want to give any plot details right now; I want you guys to be surprised.”
The script comes from Max Borenstein (THE SEVENTH SON), David Callaham (DOOM, THE EXPENDABLES), and David S. Goyer (THE DARK KNIGHT).
