With everyone getting all amped for PACIFIC RIM, it’s easy to forget that the original G is on his way back for some serious stomping action. GODZILLA (being directed by Gareth Edwards) has been in pre-production hell for a while and since Comic-Con we haven’t head much news. The Collider crew caught up with producer Dan Lin while he was out promoting GANGSTER SQUAD and got an update on the project.


“Collider: I saw the teaser and I love the director and it’s a project that I honestly cannot wait to see. Talk about where the project is at right now, when you are filming, and all that stuff.
Lin: 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 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?”
Looking forward to cameras rolling on this soon. We’ll let you know when we have more information.
