The Godzilla remake has been fairly quiet since the teaser footage from Comic-Con, but with the release of the trailer for Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, it seems the perfect time for producer Dan Lin spoke about the return of the King of the Monsters…
“We’re planning to film in March,” Lin tells 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 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?”
When pushed for answers about the film’s location or plot details he added, “I don’t want to give any plot details right now; I want you guys to be surprised.”
What a tease eh?
Godzilla will be released in 2014 (marking the 60th anniversary of the franchise) and is directed by Gareth Edwards (Monsters) from a script written by David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (Man of Steel) and Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son). This will be the first Godzilla movie since 2004’s Godzilla: Final Wars.
