GODZILLA Starts Production and Ken Watanabe Joins Cast!

Warner Bros. has announced that director Gareth Edwards has officially started production on his Godzilla movie! Legendary Pictures teased the film at Comic-Con last year, and the fans went crazy for what they were shown! It definitely got my adrenaline pumping! 

The movie officially stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston and it was also announced that Inception and Batman Begins co-star Ken Watanabe has joined the cast!

They really pulled together a great cast for this movie and I'm excited to see what the finished product is going to look like! I'm especially excited for it because the script was worked on by Frank Darabont, which means we're going to see a solid story with great dialogue.
