“Godzilla” is close to landing another big actress. After already gathering Aaron Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen, the movie might gain Juliette Binoche as well.
Variety has the news, though no clue as to what role she could be playing. Based on the rumored castings up until this point, our guess is that Binoche could play Johnson’s character’s mother.
Gareth Edwards will direct “Godzilla”. David Callaham, David S. Goyer and Max Borenstein penned the script and original Japanese creator Toho Studios is overseeing the project. Former “The Walking Dead” showrunner Frank Darabont is currently working on a rewrite. “Godzilla” is due out on May 16, 2014.
Production is expected to begin on “Godzilla” in March. Johnson is rumored for the lead role, with Cranston in talks to play his step-father and Olsen taking the role of his girlfriend. No news yet on what the plot will be about, but the repeated line is that “Godzilla” is going back to its origins in this new project.
“What we’re trying to do with the new movie is not have it camp, not have it be campy,” Darabont recently said. “We’re kind of taking a cool new look at it. But with a lot of tradition in the first film. We want this to be a terrifying force of nature.”
