23 Mar – It was revealed that the sequel of "Godzilla vs. Kong" will be returning to Queensland, Australia for its upcoming shoot.
The news was revealed by the Australian government agency Screen Queensland, stating that the untitled film will be filming around several locations across the Gold Coast as well as the southeast area.
State Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk stated, "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."
No details have been released about the plot of the sequel, but it will serve as the fifth film in Legendary's MonsterVerse franchise following "Godzilla," "Kong: Skull Island", "Godzilla: King of the Monsters" and "Godzilla vs. Kong."
It is noted that the first "Godzilla vs Kong", directed by Adam Wingard, was also filmed in Australia.
