After seeing the first bit of teaser footage from Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla reboot at Comic-Con this year, I couldn't be more excited for the film! It was such a cool experience and the crowd went crazy. Collider caught up with producer Dan Lin and asked for an update on the film which is supposed to start shooting next spring. Here's what he had to say,
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 [Legendary CEO] 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?
If you saw the Comic-Con footage then you know the feeling of the awesomeness. This was one of those movies I didn't really care about until I saw the footage. After that I was sold, I wasn't expecting that, and I can't wait to see more! I'm pretty sure it will blow audiences away.
