GODZILLA 2014 Movie Update from Producer Dan Lin


Legendary's Godzilla movie can't come soon enough but for now we're stuck with only minor details about the highly anticipated reboot.  Producer Dan Lin recently caught up with Collider.com and gave an update on the filming of the movie:

"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?"

Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey previously revealed that production will probably last until June, and Lin went on to add that filming will likely take place in Vancouver.  Stay tuned to Idol Threat for more updates, and click on the jump to read Badass Digest's recap of the much hyped Godzilla footage reveal at the 2012 Comic Con.

"Set to a droning score and with the famous “I am become death” speech by J. Robert Oppenheimer, the trailer opens with scenes of devastation. But it’s not just the buildings that are impacted; corpses lay littered around a destroyed train, and survivors crawl out of the decimated remains of crumbled buildings.

Then a slow pan around a mass… a mass with scales and clawed hands. Lots of clawed hands. It’s a dead kaiju, crashed onto a home, with carrion birds flying by. Cut to black and… the roar. The classic roar. The Godzilla roar. There’s a cloud of dust and debris with an enormous thing within it. A claw emerges and clutches the whole roof of an apartment building.

Then plates – the spiky plates that the real Godzilla has, huge things big enough for a falling I-beam to crack in half on them. And then the face is shown – more dinosaur than the original puppy dog snout, but recognizably Godzilla." -Devin Faraci - Badass Digest writer
