Everybody out of the water!
The sequel to last year’s box office giant Godzilla vs. Kong has started shooting Down Under, according to footage provided by an Australian news outlet. Check out the Twitter post–courtesy of comicbook.com–that shows hordes of extras fleeing for their lives from what will (no doubt) be Godzilla emerging from the watery depths.
Hollywood's love affair with the Gold Coast continues. Filming has begun in spectacular style for the latest instalment of the 'Godzilla vs. Kong' franchise, the action taking place in the heart of the glitter strip. https://t.co/VZ3A1cpmr5 @Amelia_Adam7 #7NEWS pic.twitter.com/fiwjuti8XT

The next Legendary Pictures MonsterVerse entry–scheduled for a March 15, 2024 release–is being directed (once again) by Adam Wingard and is produced by Alex Garcia, Eric McLeod, Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni.
The only bit of casting announced so far is Dan Stevens in a yet-to-be-revealed role. Stevens–who starred in 2017’s live-action Beauty and the Beast–worked with Wingard on 2014’s horror thriller The Guest.
Plot details have been kept under wraps at this juncture, but it’s fair to expect some sort of monumental rematch of the titans–maybe with Kong getting his hand (er, paw) raised this time around.
The 2021 Battle of the Century became the second film of the pandemic era to break the $100-million barrier at the domestic box office, on its way to a $468-million haul globally.
