Pack another good actor on to the pile for Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures’ Godzilla. Per Variety, Juliette Binoche (pictured above; Dan In Real Life, Cosmopolis) is in negotiations to star in the film to be directed by Monsters helmer Gareth Edwards. As always, character descriptions are being kept under wraps.
While Legendary awaits Frank Darabont’s polish on the script, it’s worth noting that apparently none of the talent will be officially signed until he turns in a draft. This includes Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene, Bryan Cranston (“Breaking Bad”) and Aaron Johnson (Kick Ass).
Pic will bow May 16, 2014, with production expected to start next month. I’ll still believe it when I see it re: that production start date.
