“Guardians of the Galaxy might not have a cast yet, but it does have a filming location. The upcoming Marvel Studios film is slated to shoot at Shepperton Studios in the UK.
Screen Daily has the location news, and has learned that the movie is slated to start filming over the summer. That means that all those casting rumors we’ve heard about in recent weeks will likely come to a head in the next few months.
“Thor: The Dark World” was also filmed primarily in the UK, though it did head to Iceland for some scenes. Shepperton Studios is part of the Pinewood Group, which is where the “Thor” sequel shot as well. Also due to shoot there soon are “The Muppets 2” and a live-action version of “Cinderella,” Screen Daily reports.
“Guardians of the Galaxy” is going to be directed by James Gunn off of a script written by Nicole Perlman and Chris McCoy. The roles of Star-Lord, Groot, Rocket Raccoon, Drax the Destroyer and Gamora have yet to be filled. Actors like Zachary Levi, Jim Sturgess and Michael Rosenbaum are reportedly contenders for the role of Star-Lord.
