Seamus McGarvey: GODZILLA Begins Shooting In March; May Return For THE AVENGERS 2

Cinematographer Seamus McGarvey (The Avengers) reveals that Legendary Pictures' much anticipated Godzilla reboot will begin production next March. He also says that he's been asked by Joss Whedon to return for The Avengers sequel.



Earlier today, we reported that Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes will begin production in March 2013 for its May 2014 release. Now, we have news on another summer 2014 blockbuster filming in that month: Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures' Godzilla. Speaking with Collider, cinematographer Seamus McGarvey reveals when the Gareth Edwards-directed reboot will be shooting. "We start in March. March ‘til June, I think." Legendary showcased a teaser trailer for the film at San Diego Comic-Con last summer to a very positive response. McGarvey also says that they haven't decided which visual approach to go with yet, but he will be testing next week. "We still haven’t chosen the direction we’re going visually. I’m sort of testing next week, in fact, for that stuff." Godzilla is scheduled to hit theaters May 16th, 2014 in 3D.

McGarvey most recently did cinematography on Marvel's The Avengers. When asked about whether or not he will return for the announced sequel, he says "I can’t really say that, but yes he [writer/director Joss Whedon] has asked me." So it sounds like McGarvey will return for cinematography duties for The Avengers 2 assuming that his schedule allows it. This is certainly great news, as The Avengers' cinematography was rather amazing. The Avengers 2 is set to hit theaters May 1st, 2015. Stay tuned to CBM for more news on both Godzilla and The Avengers.
