Latest ‘Godzilla’ Casting News Monstrous!


Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures have immediately impressed me with their casting choices for Godzilla, to be directed by Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards.

While Legendary awaits a Frank Darabont polish on its Godzilla script, the studio continues to assemble its cast, entering talks with Martha Marcy May Marlene and The Silent House‘s Elizabeth Olsen, pictured above, and “Breaking Bad” and Total Recall‘s Bryan Cranston, picture below, to co-star, reports Variety. Kick-AssAaron Johnson is also in talks, as previously reported. Sources stress that no deals will be done until the finished script materializes.

Character descriptions, along with other plot details, are under wraps for now.

Pic will bow May 16, 2014, with production expected to start next month.

    Adding Cranston to the film will give it a ton of credibility. My guess is he would play an army General, which would be badass.

    Some impressive casting for sure.

    I wonder if Elizabeth Olsen would marry me… I think I have a chance, I am stunningly good looking! I have a great career and we are the same age… But, I play video games :(

    I guess there goes my chance on that.

    I fell in love with Elizabeth Olsen’s acting abilities after MMMM, and Silent House. Oh, how I loved Silent House! Gotta buy that on DVD soon. Really enjoyed Bryan Cranston in the Total Recall remake, and I know it’s blasphemy to say this over the internet, but I’ve never seen one episode of Breaking Bad……..

    This is becoming an unfortunate theme to my comments but…my god, Gareth Edwards? Has anyone actually seen Monsters? It sounds great, but it is an excruciatingly slow and dull film. Sure, a good premise and some neat creatures (for the 12 seconds that they appeared) but the movie drags on forever and never accomplishes anything. It’s all buildup and no payoff. The characters are annoying and undeveloped and the ending is cheesy and horrible.

    And then there’s the whole thing where 5 different guys are already being credited for the screenplay. If that’s not a sure sign of an incoming failure, I don’t know what is.
