During a live Q&A session on Periscope, director James Gunn revealed Guardians of the Galaxy 2 would begin shooting in February 2016.
SuperHeroHype reports the sequel to 2014’s summer blockbuster will be filming in Pinewood Atlanta Studios, the same location used for the filming of Captain America: Civil War and Ant-Man.
Gunn recently announced he had turned in his story treatment to the studio and that work on the screenplay was already underway.
Few plot details about Guardians of the Galaxy 2 are known at this time, but actors Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Bradley Cooper, Vin Diesel, and Dave Bautista will reprise their roles as the ragtag group fighting galactic evil. It opens on May 5, 2017.
