The sequel to "Godzilla vs Kong" will begin filming later this year in Queensland, Australia. The news was announced today by Screen Queensland.
The film will shoot in locations across the Gold Coast and the southeast and is expected to be a big boost for the economy with A$79.2M ($58.6M) to the region, as well as creating 505 jobs for local cast and crew, and possible work for extras.
"The clear starting point we teed up (in GVK), exploring Hollow Earth, I think there is a lot more to do there. This is a pre-history of Planet Earth, where all the titans come from. We tee up some mystery in this film, things I want to see resolved and explored and pushed to the next level", said director Adam Wingard.
State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk said, "The production is expected to inject more than double the $36.5 million that Godzilla Vs Kong brought to the state and is a welcome boost to our economy as we recover from the impacts of the global pandemic and southeast Queensland flooding events. These types of productions benefit our screen industry, deliver local jobs, and provide a welcome boost to our small businesses and communities in and around our production sites."
"Godzilla vs Kong", which was released in March of 2021, grossed over $468 million at the box office.
