Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla vs. Kong director Adam Wingard has confirmed production on the film will officially begin this week in Atlanta.
Wingard took it to his private Instagram account to announce the production start through a storyboard picture featuring Godzilla’s befuddled reaction. He mentioned that filming will finally begin this week after a year’s worth of pre-production.
Interestingly, in another post, Wingard revealed that the fan-favorite Kong will be getting a slight upgrade in Godzilla vs. Kong. He shared a teaser photo showing a sketch of Kong with a warning that reads “DANGER AREA OFF LIMITS.” Later on, Wingard left a comment on the picture hinting Kong’s makeover.
“FYI this is not Kong’s new design,” Godzilla vs. Kong director noted in the comment. “He looks way cooler than this in the movie.”
Godzilla vs. Kong will showcase the battle between two famous monsters Godzilla and King Kong with the two possibly teaming up to fight a greater threat. The film’s first teaser was showcased at the end of Kong: Skull Island, which revealed that King Kong was living on the same Earth as other MonsterVerse creatures Godzilla, Rodan, Mothra, and King Ghidorah.
Legendary’s MonsterVerse franchise already includes 2014’s Godzilla, 2017’s Kong: Skull Island, and a sequel to Godzilla, titled King of the Monsters, which is now in production.
Godzilla vs. Kong’s script has been written by Terry Rossio (Pirates of the Caribbean), Lindsey Beer (The Kingkiller Chronicles), Patrick McKay and J.D. Payne (Star Trek Beyond), Cat Vasko (Queen of the Air), J. Michael Straczynski (World War Z), and T.S. Nowlin (The Maze Runner, Pacific Rim: Uprising).
The film’s cast list includes some big names like Millie Bobby Brown, Julian Dennison, Brian Tyree Henry, Rebecca Hall, Demian Bichir, and Eiza Gonzalez.
Godzilla: King of the Monsters will hit theaters on May 31, 2019, while Godzilla vs. Kong is set to release on May 22, 2020.
