Yesterday, principal photography began on Godzilla: King of the Monsters down in Atlanta, Georgia. Stars Vera Farmiga, Kyle Chandler, and Millie Bobbie Brown, as well as director Michael Dougherty reported to set to start filming the follow-up to Godzilla (2014) and Kong: Skull Island.
The film will detail the efforts of Monarch, the secret organization introduced in the first film, as they fight to protect humanity from Godzilla and some new friends.
The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species-thought to be mere myths-rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.
The film also stars Ken Watanabe and Sally Hawkins reprising their roles from the first film, as well as franchise newcomers O’Shea Jackson Jr., Bradley Whitford, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, Aisha Hinds, and Zhang Ziyi. The film is scheduled for release in March 2019, in both 3D and 2D, as well as in select IMAX theaters. Toho will handle distribution in Japan.
