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.

The film, whose working title is Nautilus, did a casting call in February for extras and recently notified residents along Old Victoria Road that filming is about to begin. Joan Miller, the North Island film commissioner, says Vancouver Island will make up the first shots for the new take on the legendary radioactive monster, which is set to hit theatres next year. Crews will stay in Nanaimo hotels for three days while they shoot the scenes downtown and Ladysmith area before they move onto Shawnigan Lake.

Where the production will move after that has yet to be announced.

Meanwhile, ReelChicago.com has found out that the fourth Transformers movie will return to the Windy City for its production this summer. They report that the production staff on the film will arrive in Chicago in June with the production of the film expected to last from July through October. It was rumored many months ago that the film would both shoot and take place in China, but it seems that has now changed.

Directed by Michael Bay and featuring a script by Ehren Kruger, Transformers 4 will star Mark Wahlberg and Jack Reynor and is set for a June 27, 2014 release.

Gareth Edwards will direct Godzilla, which is set to star Aaron Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen and Juliette Binoche. It's targeting a May 16, 2014 release.
