Godzilla: King of the Monsters Shooting Scenes in Mexico City


It’s confirmed that Mike Dougherty, the cast, and the crew of Godzilla: King of the Monsters, will be heading south of the border to do some filming in Mexico City! The plan is to shoot for three days for what apparently could be a scene if a kaiju emerging from a volcano, per Godzilla-Movies.

Making the announcement in Mexico, producer Alex Garcia told a crowd, “All of us are immensely excited to film in your beautiful country and in this extraordinary city. We scouted extensively across the world to find the perfect environment for this key scene in the film and found everything we needed here in Mexico City…Godzilla is one of the oldest film franchises in the world. It’s only fitting that he – and some of his friends – are now finally setting foot in Mexico.

The film will feature Kyle Chandler as a scientist and Vera Farmiga and Millie Bobby Brown as his family members with Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, Elizabeth Ludlow, Randy Havens, Sally Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson, Jr., Bradley Whitford, Zhang Ziyi, and Ken Watanabe rounding out the cast.

Michael Dougherty is directing Godzilla: King of the Monsters from a script he penned with Zach Shields. It is currently in production and scheduled for release on March 22, 2019. Alex Garcia is overseeing the project for Legendary. The monster mash-up Godzilla vs. Kong, which recently announced Blair Witch‘s Adam Wingard as its director, is slated to bow the following year on May 22, 2020.

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.
