[[wysiwyg_imageupload:5622:]]We just heard that the Guardians of the Galaxy movie is already in production and slated to begin filming in June.

We also know that director James Gunn recently left for London to shoot the movie, and now Gunn offers an update via his Facebook:

Celebrating the end of my first week in England in pre-production. My crew and offices here are incredible - I'm surrounded by amazing people full of amazing talent. After a full week here I'm finally starting to adjust to the new time zone - last night I got a full six hours of sleep, which is good for me. It's been rainy here almost the whole time but because it's London it doesn't seem so bad. I miss my girlfriend, my dog, my cat, my friends, and listening to Howard Stern. But the girlfriend and dog will be here next week, so that's something. I found a house with a huge yard for Von Spears, which I'm moving into next week. All is good!

Gunn is said to be in London for nine months while he films the Guardians of the Galaxy movie.

Recent news includes mention that Chris Pratt has been cast as Star-Lord, the lead role, and Marvel Studios producer, Victoria Alonso, has been discussing the visual effects for Rocket Raccoon and Groot.

The Guardians of the Galaxy movie has an August 1, 2014 release date.
