Legendary’s now-filming Godzilla reboot, helmed by Monsters director Gareth Edwards, will include a key cast member from the original film.

In addition, Victor Rasuk (Being Flynn) has been added to the cast as well.
Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Johnson, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Richard T. Jones round out the cast. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce along with Mary Parent. Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham penned the script. Production is currently underway in Vancouver.
