Canada.com has revealed that the production for the remake  of Godzilla has  found a home and it’s in the city of Nanaimo in British Columbia. Here are  the details they’ve revealed:

Gareth Edward’s sci-fi reboot  of the city-destroying Godzilla is being filmed across Vancouver Island this  March, from Nanaimo’s Old Victoria Road to Ladysmith and Shawnigan Lake. More  than 300 crew members are expected to land in the Harbour City for the eight-day  central Island shoot and have pledged to use local extras, staff and  equipment.

Crews will stay in Nanaimo hotels for three days while they  shoot the scenes downtown and Ladysmith area before they move onto Shawnigan  Lake.

About billfoley63

I was born in 1963 and that is relevant to my development of my love for science-fiction and fantasy movies, comic books, superheroes and many other things attributed to Nerd culture. In the 60s I watched all the Saturday afternoon Godzilla and monster movies I could take. In the 70s I became hooked on Star Trek. I am also an artist (in my own mind at least) and a musician. I enjoy learning about physics, astrophysics, chemistry and earth silences such as meteorology, anthropology, paleontology. When I reached my late 30s I began to re-explore my nerd roots. I reconnected with my love of science fiction and fantasy movies along with the other science related topics. For this blog I will focus on movie and TV reviews for science fiction and fantasy and post my thoughts on up coming movies. I will also include some fun facts from the various sciences I enjoy along with weather facts and bits from royalty and history. What I will not discuss is religion and politics. I am married to a beautiful woman named Sarah and have a lovely daughter named Danielle.
