Lets take this one breath at a time and keep the salt shaker with us. Gormaru Island reported on a week old video segment from a local Atlanta, Georgia news station (WSBTV) about the construction of BlackHall Studios. BlackHall is a new, massive production studio hoping to court the business of many upcoming blockbusters. In the segment, site reporter Steve Gehlbach hints at Godzilla: King of Monsters being among the first blockbusters to shoot at the new location:

"That comes in March. Can't say what it is, but the rumors involves a sequel with a giant lizard-like creature wreaking havoc..."

You can watch the video on Gormaru Island's Facebook here.

This is consistent with another local report two weeks ago, that offhand mentions Godzilla 2 will be shooting in Atlanta. If true, and production does begin in March, it obviously means much more has been accomplished on the sequel than was lead to believe. If it sounds like this news is contradicting the information that Godzilla 2 is shooting at China's new Qingdao Movie Metropolis, keep in mind that many films shoot at various locations.

Fans have wondered how shooting could be so soon if there's no director or script in place, but just because Legendary Pictures hasn't announced a director doesn't necessarily mean they haven't already picked one. It's also possible the local report could be incorrect and Godzilla: King of Monsters is shooting later in the year--Which would be a more believable timetable. We'll have to wait and see.

Stay tuned as more develops on the progress of Godzilla: King of Monsters.

It's surprising but won't discount it yet, though. Is it possible Pacific Rim 2 could be filming there?

^No, the studio isn't quite finished yet and Pacific Rim 2 isn't anywhere to be found on Atlanta's filming schedules. I actually expect Pacific Rim 2 to be wrapped before or by March.

Fair enough Gman, I can't think of any other giant lizard sequel movies that are coming out in the next 2 years that would likely be filming haha could very well be King of Monsters!

I thought someone would talk about the S.H. Monsterarts "Monster Countdown" by now.

It makes sense to start this year actually. I didn't think it would be so soon (march), I was thinking maybe summer.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaJan-21-2017 11:38 PM

^I'm actually thinking the local report is misinformed and it's starting later in the year. I think it would make more sense to start shooting during the end of the year and spend all of next year in post-production.

On the other hand--They might be doing this to get a headstart on Godzilla vs. Kong... All of this is merely speculation though. The report is everything we have to go on.

^Do you think they could be filming G2 and GvsK simultaneously ala Lord of the Rings/The Hobbit? Seeing as how they are only 14 months apart?

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaJan-22-2017 12:00 AM

The thought had crossed my mind, but again, it's reaching speculation at best.

They need to announce a director...

Wow that would be a huge jump if we go from no cast or director to shooting in a little over a month.

G. H. (Gman)

AdminGodzillaJan-22-2017 9:11 AM

^I do wonder... Is production shooting in a month? Or is it simply moving there in a month? The facility isn't quite finished and when Godzilla 2's production team gets there they'll have to build sets, which normally takes a few months. That would fit a more realistic time table of shooting in the summer or later in the year.

And yet again, spit-balling.

I guess we'll find out soon if filming starts in March Legendary has like a month to start announcing roles for the film, maybe they're waiting till closer to Kong to hype that up along with G2.
