New American GODZILLA Film Shoots Next March

The King of Monsters himself, Godzilla, has been on a bit of a sabbatical these past couple of years since Toho Studio’s 2004 Godzilla: Final Wars. But Warner brothers and Legendary Pictures have been slowly developing a return to the big screen for the Big-G and it looks as if it is ready to get in front of the Cameras.

Speaking to The Playlist, cinematographer Seamus McGarvey (The Avengers) stated that director Gareth Edwards now has the project set to shoot this coming spring –

We don’t start shooting until March of next year. I’m in the process of testing what our visual approach will be. It’s wonderful working with Gareth. He’s a wonderful filmmaker and somebody who understands the camera.

We still don’t know much about the story of the film, except that it should concern a giant rampaging, radioactivity-breathing lizard monster, but we do know that the film’s screenplay is by Max Borenstein and Drew Pearce working from a story by David S. Goyer with Dave Callaham working on a draft as well.

Godzilla stomps into theaters on May 16th, 2014.
