Earlier this month, Warner Brothers and Legendary Pictures decided to let monster movie fans start counting down the days as they set the date for the big screen revival of Godzilla. Though we still have over a year and a half until we get to see the cinematic icon rage across Tokyo once more, it's clear that casting will be getting underway soon as possible for a filming start next year. Now today, we know exactly when that will be as the first details regarding Godzilla's production start has been revealed.
One on-site reporter for OLV (On Location Vacations) tweets, "Godzilla remake will be coming to Vancouver in March 2013, tentatively". This remake is of course from director Gareth Edwards (Monsters) and has been in development for over a year already. The big green giant made his Comic-Con return in 2011, where he returned in style just one year later back in July with the first teaser trailer during the WB/Legendary panel.
With a screenplay by David Callaham (The Expendables films), David S. Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy) and Max Borenstein (upcoming The Seventh Son), the upcoming film promises to "return the character to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner". Edwards will be shooting Godzilla in 3D, with a release set for May 16th 2014.
No lead human characters have yet been cast, but we'll keep you updated on future developments.
