GODZILLA: KING OF MONSTERS (2019): Shooting Set For June


Production On Godzilla: King Of Monsters To Start In June

Legendary Pictures announces that it has selected a production date and shooting location for its upcoming film Godzilla: King of Monsters.

Although the long-awaited Godzilla sequel is not set to hit theaters until March of 2019, the movie will start shooting this coming June in Atlanta, Georgia. It’s safe to say that the large gap between the film’s start date and its release date will provide an ample amount of time to do the necessary post-production work on a project of this scale. Fans, however, will have to tide themselves over with the related Kong: Skull Island.

Not much has been revealed about the production or its cast, but Krampus director Michael Dougherty has been tapped to helm it. The only actor to have been revealed so far is Millie Bobby Brown, the breakout child star of Netflix‘s Stranger Things.

Per, the source of this story:

The production schedule should work out well for Brown, who is rumored to reprise her role as Eleven in season two of “Stranger Things,” which is also filming in Atlanta. Marvel’s “Black Panther” and “Avengers: Infinity War” are also currently filming in Atlanta. “Ant-Man and the Wasp” was originally slated to begin filming in Atlanta starting in June, but a recent Facebook post from Michael Douglas revealed the film’s start date had been pushed back a month.

An aspiring writer, longtime film junkie, and former disc jockey (where I graduated with a BA in Political Science), I've made the jump from penning book reviews and current events editorials for to writing movie and TV news and reviews.

When I'm not working towards my certificate in Radio and Television/Video Production at Fullerton College, I enjoy reading (horror, science fiction, and historical/political nonfiction are particular favorites), participating in my school's TV and theatre clubs, attending movie screenings, plays, concerts, and other events, and trying to come up with pithy things to say on social media. Believe it or not, there are occasions where I find time to write for my own leisure.
