Legendary Pictures and director Gareth Edwards are currently in the process of prepping the new Godzilla film for production. Frank Darabont is polishing up the script, and they are looking to cast some of the main characters. Variety reports that the studio has just entered talks with Brayn Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Olsen (Silent House) to co-star in the film. It was previously reported that Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson was in talks to play the main character in the movie. Apparently no official deal will be made until the script is completed.
So far, all we know about the film's plot is that it will include more than one giant monster and the story would revolve around a soldier.
The movie is set to be released on May 16th, 2014, and production is expected to start next month, so I imagine we'll be seeing some actors being locked down in the near future. All the actors that are in talks with right now are great, and I hope they all end up being cast in this monstrously epic film.
