Producer offers an update on the 'Godzilla" reboot

We haven't heard much from director Gareth Edwards or the rest of the Godzilla camp since we were first shown the initial test footage of the pic at San Diego Comic-Con.
However, while doing interviews for Gangster Squad, producer Dan Lin offered an update on the epic kaiju remake, which is scheduled to begin filming this March. "Gareth [Edwards] has really mapped out his vision for the movie," Lin told Collider. "You saw the teaser, but Gareth -- thanks to [Legendary CEO] Thomas Tull’s help -- he took over a whole stage on the Warner [Bros.] lot and not only showed the teaser you saw, he had some models built of Godzilla, he had art decorated all over the soundstage, he had pre-vis of some of the big action sequences in the movie.
"So we're in deep pre-production and Gareth's vision of the movie is really exciting, it's a true reboot of Godzilla," he continued. "And you saw from the Comic-Con footage it is a grounded, realistic version of Godzilla. What would happen if Godzilla came into our world today?"
According to Lin, Godzilla could shoot in Vancouver, although he wouldn't say if the Japanese icon would be returning to its native waters. "I don't want to give any plot details right now," he said. "I want you guys to be surprised."
