Per usual, Gormaru Island is on top of the harder-to-find tidbits regarding the Godzilla fandom. This time they have unearthed an article by Atlanta, Georgia's Business Chronicle. The Chronicle had an interview with film office chief Lee Thomas who spoke about the industry's growth in Atlanta. One of the films referenced as part of the industry's 2018 development was Godzilla vs. Kong.
"Thomas said she thinks the industry will continue building momentum throughout 2018, with more shows coming town, reportedly including "Godzilla vs. King Kong."
This is the only mention of the big 2020, giant monster crossover. The article continues to pull examples of how Atlanta's film business is growing--Including a Kodak Photographic Arts Center which would make the city set-friendly for celluloid.
It's important to note that this is not official confirmation that Godzilla vs. Kong's production will start this year. However, the Atlanta Business Chronicle has been on point about Godzilla before. This could be the first sign of a quickly approaching production start. More as it comes.
Thanks to Gormaru Island for the digging.
Godzilla vs. Kong is directed by Adam Wingard based on a writers room story led by Terry Rossio. Alex Garcia is producing.
The film will hit theaters May 22nd, 2020.
