There’s been some mayhem in the Godzilla camp. Production was delayed when Frank Darabont was brought in to rewrite Max Borenstein’s script. This was on the heels of the dispute between Legendary and producers Dan Lin and Roy Lee resulting in Lin and Lee leaving the project.
But now, some good news: Legendary Pictures is in talks with Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston to co-star in the giant monster movie. No word on plot or character details yet.
English actor Aaron Johnson of Kick Ass fame is also in talks for the movie. I can only imagine he will play love interest to Olsen.
This casting makes me hopeful for the Godzilla reboot. Cranston, as we all know, rules the screen in everything and Olsen was great in Martha Marcy May Marlene. She continues to grow her horror CV with 2012’s Silent House and a co-starring role in Spike Lee’s upcoming remake of Oldboy.
