While Godzilla has been in the works for a couple of years, it feels as if everything’s been put into a bit of a last minute rush, with Frank Darabont still rewriting the script and only one star attached at the moment – Aaron Johnson – even though production is supposed to start in Canada in March.
Now a couple more potential cast members are circling the project, with Variety reporting that Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen are in early talks to star in the movie. However, it’s unlikely that any deals will be finalised until the completed screenplay has been turned in – which certainly does leave everything until the last minute.
No character details or plot information has been released, so we don’t know who Cranston, Olsen, or indeed Aaron Johnson will be playing, although earlier info has said this plans to be a more ‘realistic’ take on the Godzilla idea. Gareth Edwards is directing, with a May 16th, 2014 release already set.
