The team behind Legendary and Warner Bros.’ Godzilla have done an amazing job in keeping their lips sealed tight. No information has come out of the process other than this past Comic-Con’s premiere of a teaser and one-sheet.
The boys at Collider have attempted to get producer Dan Lin to break the silence on the latest reboot that’s to be helmed by Gareth Edwards. He at least gets some info on the production schedule…and a bit more.
“We’re planning to film in March,” said Lin. “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?”
This seems like the obvious direction to take the franchise, and insiders have told me the difficulty they had in coming up with a new take. It should be interesting to see what the collective minds of David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight) and Max Borenstein (Seventh Son) have come up with. Godzilla will rise from the Ocean May 16, 2014.
