Producer Dan Lin Talks GODZILLA Reboot; Production To Take Place In Vancouver

Lin offers an update on WB/Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot, confirming that filming begins in March and will likely shoot in Vancouver. He also comments on director Gareth Edwards' realistic approach.

Speaking with Collider, producer Dan Lin offers an update on Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' anticipated Godzilla reboot. We previously heard that the movie will begin production in March, which Lin confirms, as well as where they are in pre-production. "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." As for where Godzilla will be filming, Lin names one shooting location. "Most likely it's filming in Vancouver."

We previously heard from director Gareth Edwards that his take on the long-running franchise will be a more realistic approach. Lin comments on this approach, agreeing that this will be a grounded version of Godzilla. "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?"

Godzilla is set to hit theaters May 16th, 2014 in 3D.
