I have to smile at the seeming irony of that announcement. Godzilla and Vancouver just don't sound like words that should be grouped within the same sentence.

Sincerely,

I'm sure the people of Vancouver will feel the same way once he's done with their city...

Would be fun to see some of the Vancouver SF/F regulars: Heyerdahl, Robbins et al. And if go mo-cap, please give Godzilla some personality

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Comingsoon.net is reporting the following…

Canada.com has revealed that the production for the remake of Godzilla has found a home and it’s in the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia. Here are the details they’ve revealed:
Gareth Edward’s sci-fi reboot of the city-destroying Godzilla is being filmed across Vancouver Island this March, from Nanaimo’s Old Victoria Road to Ladysmith and Shawnigan Lake. More than 300 crew members are expected to land in the Harbour City for the eight-day central Island shoot and have pledged to use local extras, staff and equipment.
The film, whose working title is Nautilus, did a casting call in February for extras and recently notified residents along Old Victoria Road that filming is about to begin. Joan Miller, the North Island film commissioner, says Vancouver Island will make up the first shots for the new take on the legendary radioactive monster, which is set to hit theatres next year. Crews will stay in Nanaimo hotels for three days while they shoot the scenes downtown and Ladysmith area before they move onto Shawnigan Lake.

I don't understand why the would announce the title they are using while filming. I thought the whole point of the alternate title was so no one knew what they were filming.

I know! Very strange. Maybe they want the publicity?

But if they want publicity why would they use a different name?

Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

Someone might have just figured out that Nautilus is Godzilla and report on it. It's like when gaming consoles have code names, but everyone figures out what they mean anyways.

Richard T. Jones has joined the cast of Godzilla. Here is a list of the rest of the major cast.

Juliette Binoche
Bryan Cranston
Aaron Taylor-Johnson
Elizabeth Olsen
David Strathairn
Ken Watanabe


I don't know if they will be casting any more people. I cannot remember reading about movies that cast actors so late in the production!

I don't think it's that uncommon. After all, it can take months to shoot a film, so you don't necessarily need to cast a role before shooting if you won't be filming their scenes until later in the process.

There have, of course, been cases when a role was recast shortly after shooting began, like Hugh Jackman replacing Dougray Scott as Wolverine and Viggo Mortenson replacing Stuart Townsend as Aragorn.
