‘Godzilla 2’ Shoots In Mexico City Next Week and Details From Casting Calls

Aug 16, 2017


Legendary’s Godzilla 2 aka Fathom has been casting multiple types of military and scientist roles for the film, a given for a movie like this. Production is currently taking place in Atlanta and they consistently cast new extras on a regular basis.

Omega Underground has collected some these casting calls (old and new) that could shine a light on the sequel with some minor tidbits.

Some might consider the following info as spoilers, you’ve been warned.

One extra casting call reveals Monarch‘s potential new mode of transportation in the film which just might be a submarine. This could explain the working title of Fathom.


-Female (20-49)


-Very Athletic/Fit 

-Conservative Hairstyles

-All Ethnicities 



-Male (20-49)

-Very Fit/Athletic

-Clean cut/polished look

-All Enthentices

I’m not sure how they fit this into the film but we’ll see some mercenaries and bounty hunters.



-Caucasian Female (20-40s)

-Must Have Military Experience Or Very Atheltic

-Shoulder Length Brunette Hair



-Females (20-40s)

-Military/Law Enforcement Tactical Training or Very Athletic

-All Enthentices 



-Male (18-49)

-Military/Tactical Training




-Two Males (20-50s) 

-Athletic or Muscular Build

-Scars, Facial Hair, Long Hair, & Tattoos




Guatemala is likely a location in the film via the extras casting call below. Although, we haven’t learned if they’ll actually film there despite rumors of a planned shoot in Antigua.

It’s also expected to spend some time shooting in the port city of Qingdao, China at Wanda Group’s studio facility there. Pacific Rim: Uprising spent the tail end of their production at the facility.

The Mothra teaser picture mentioned the fictional Yucca Province (referring to the Yucca moth?), which might be connected to China.



Legendary producer Alex Garcia (via Gormaru Island) confirmed the production will shoot a “key scene” next week August 21-23 in Mexico City, Mexico.

“We scouted extensively across the world to find the perfect environment for this key scene in the film and found everything we needed here in Mexico City…Godzilla is one of the oldest film franchises in the world. It’s only fitting that he - and some of his friends - are now finally setting foot in Mexico.”

I have to assume that they’ll attempt to shoot at the Teotihuacan Pyramids for the Moth Temple. It could also double for Guatemala.

Other roles from casting calls include marines, pilots, situation room workers, bodyguards/guards, a hazmat team, FEMA/Red Cross workers, firefighters, and many many scientists.

Random details we’ve discovered from casting information includes a lavish wedding, an alcoholics anonymous meeting, and Air Base location.

The new story follows the heroic efforts of the crypto-zoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient super-species—thought to be mere myths—rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity’s very existence hanging in the balance.


The cast includes Vera Farmiga, Millie Bobby Brown, Kyle Chandler, Thomas Middleditch, Charles Dance, Sally Hawkins, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Bradley Whitford, Ziyi Zhang, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Ludlow, Jonathan Howard, Aisha Hinds, and Anthony Ramos.

Godzilla 2 is set for release on March 22nd, 2019.
