The name Seamus McGarvey may not be one that you’re incredibly familiar with, but you undoubtedly know his work.  The cinematographer is responsible for the photography in such varied fare as Atonement, High Fidelity, and We Need to Talk About Kevin, and he also handled the cinematography on a little movie called The Avengers that you may have seen earlier this year.

Steve recently got to speak with McGarvey about his work in director Joe Wright’s upcoming romance drama Anna Karenina, and the cinematographer provided brief updates on a couple of highly anticipated upcoming projects.  He revealed that the Godzilla reboot starts production this coming March, and he strongly suggested that he’ll be returning for Joss Whedon’s sequel The Avengers 2.  Hit the jump for more.

godzilla posterMcGarvey is set as the cinematographer on Warner Bros. and Legendary’s upcoming Godzilla reboot directed by Gareth Edwards, so Steve asked if he could reveal anything about the highly anticipated monster movie.  Though he was remiss to get into plot details, he did reveal the production schedule:

“We start in March.  March ‘til June, I think.”

At Comic-Con earlier this year, Legendary showed a tease of Godzilla test footage that Edwards shot that had the crowd going wild.  McGarvey revealed that they haven’t nailed down the exact visual approach just yet, but he starts prep next week:

“We still haven’t chosen the direction we’re going visually.  I’m sort of testing next week, in fact, for that stuff.”

With Joss Whedon confirmed to return as the writer and director of Marvel’s The Avengers 2, Steve asked McGarvey whether Whedon has asked him to return as cinematographer for the follow-up:

 “I can’t really say that, but yes he has asked me.”

Assuming the schedule lines up, it certainly sounds like McGarvey will be handling the photography on The Avengers 2.  Look for Steve’s full interview with the cinematographer soon.
