UPDATE: GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY 'Alien Spaceship Crash' Filming Planned At UK Farmland

Revealing the film's first potential filming site on location, Marvel has requested temporary use of a farmland in the UK for scenes in Guardians of the Galaxy involving the aftermath of a crashed ship.



With Guardians of the Galaxy set largely in the depths of space, principal photography is primarily taking place on sound stages in UK film studios. However, given that producer Kevin Feige has previously implied that at least 5 percent of the movie is set on earth, recent proposal applications indicate the Marvel production is keen on shooting on a farmland in Bramley, Guildford, Surrey.

While Marvel is currently awaiting approval from the Waverley Borough Council, who've yet to report any objections, the application statement reveals, "The natural slope of the land at Tilsey Farm, Horsham Road, (photographed below) has informed the decision to film in this area as it creates an appropriate back drop to the proposed alien spaceship crash scene."

"The 'crash site' film set will be 75 metres by 75 metres and formed through the excavation of the soil to form an elongated 'crater,'"
a portion reads. "The estimated range of depth of dig will be 0.5 meters to 1.75 meters, below field level. The associated 'prop' debris of the 'spaceship' will be positioned on the site. The special effects to be used on the filming day only, will stimulate the immediate aftermath of a crashed space ship. Effects will include: Ground Hits (Pyrotechnic charge), Black Smoke, LPG Fire, White Smoke, and Wind Machines..."

UPDATE: a rendering of the film set reveals the scene(s) is being called 'Yondu's Crash,' indicating that actor Michael Rooker's character would be piloting the spaceship when it crash lands on earth.



The production timetable also reveals that set preparation would start on July 27th and last a maximum of two weeks before filming takes place for just a day, on August 23rd, with the farmland expected to be back to normal by early September. Anyhow, for other details, technicalities and associated work required to facilitate filming, check out the proposal applications here! Meanwhile, an extra hired on Guardians of the Galaxy recently revealed that his alien character required him to shave his head as he'll be wearing a prosthetic, have green eyes and fangs! What do you think?



Starring Chris Pratt, Zoe Saldana, Dave Bautista, Michael Rooker, Ophelia Lovibond, John C. Reilly, Enzo Cilenti, Lee Pace, Karen Gillan and Glenn Close with Benicio Del Toro, Guardians of the Galaxy is written & directed by James Gunn, and is set to be released in theaters on August 1, 2014.
