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-Ass‘ Aaron 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.
