Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, Godzilla, Transformers 4 shoot news
When are Godzilla, Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes and Transformers 4 heading before the cameras?
Production work is set to start next year on a clutch of big blockbusters, and we’ve rounded the latest updates for you all in one place. Which is here. Hope that helps.
Firstly, an update from cinematographer Seamus McGarvey. He was chatting to Collider, and revealed when production is set to start on the new Godzilla movie, which is being directed by Gareth Edwards (the man behind the simply marvellous Monsters). The film is due out in May 2014, and McGarvey revealed that filming is set to commence next March, running through until June.
He also revealed that he’s been asked by Joss Whedon to shoot The Avengers 2. McGarvey shot the first Avengers movie, so it was somewhat expected he’d be back for the second instalment.
Then, there’s news on Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes, which is set for release in May 2014. There’s been a change of director here, with Rupert Wyatt leaving the project, and Cloverfield’s Matt Reeves taking it on. And a new casting call has revealed the shooting start date, and a brief synopsis.
The shoot for that is also set to commence in March 2013, and the outline reads: “Dawn Of The Planet Of The Apes continues the story of how ultra-intelligent simian Caesar (Andy Serkis) presides over the fall of human civilization. After the apes break out of their facility, a virus breaks out that causes the collapse of human society. The new project is taking the story to the next level, with the apes on the path to emerge as society’s new rulers”.
Finally, Transformers 4 is set to go before the cameras next year, too, with The Hollywood Reporter suggesting that the shoot may visit Thailand this time around. The plan is to film the movie between April and November next year, we’re hearing.
More on all of these movies when we hear more.
