Yesterday we learned that Gareth Edwards' Godzilla remake would include more than one giant monster, and that the story would revolve around a soldier. Today we've learned that Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson might end up in the role of that soldier. According to Deadline he's now the top choice for the studio. We previously heard that Henry Cavill (Man of Steel), Scoot McNairy (Argo), and Caleb Landry Jones (X-Men: First Class) were also being considered for the gig, guess now they're the studio's runners up unless they've already turned them down.
Johnson won't commit to the project until after he's seen the script which is currently being re-writen by Frank Darabont. Like I said before, I don't really care who's cast in the film, Godzilla in the main character in the movie, and the only reason I want to see it, so I just hope the people working on the film get it right.
The movie is apparently going to be very different from any other Godzilla movies that's been made. All I know is the teaser footage shown at Comic-Con was enough to get me amped up for the film. It gave me the chills. What do you think about the possibility of Kick-Ass taking on Godzilla?
