Godzilla vs Kong’s sequel will also be shot in Queensland.
The next installment of Godzilla vs Kong already has a location set to shoot, Queensland, Australia. State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told the press that the shooting will start sometime this year in locations across the Gold Coast and the southeast region. Palaszczuk also mentioned the benefits of shooting the film in Queensland:
“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.”
The first film by Legendary/Warner Bros was also shot in Queensland and grossed over 468 million dollars worldwide.
“The highly skilled crews, first-rate facilities, and unique locations make filming in Australia a great experience. The Federal government’s support has always been critical to our success in achieving a high level of filmmaking and an unparalleled audience experience.” said the producer of Godzilla vs Kong about the location.
Ever since the Production Attraction Strategy was introduced in 2015, Queensland became quite a popular location for all kinds of international productions, like Young Rock by NBC, or Joe vs Carole by Peacock and several other new series’ and films.
There isn’t much information about Godzilla vs Kong’s sequel yet, although Adam Wingard, the director of the first film told Deadline that he plans on continuing the franchise:
“The clear starting point we teed up, 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.”
