As it turns out, Godzilla is a monster of refined tastes, and he's just added a little French to the menu with the casting of Juliette Binoche.
The 'Godzilla' reboot has been making some waves -- we reported not long ago that Aaron Johnson is in talks for the lead role, and now Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston are in talks to face the giant lizard, too.
The last we heard on the 'Godzilla' reboot front was that Legendary Pictures ran into some legal drama after booting out their old producers. While that's being worked out, Frank Darabont is busy at work revamping the script one final time for the film's 2014 release, and he's so graciously revealed a few tidbits about what we can look forward to.
There's been a bit of rumbling about the upcoming 'Godzilla' remake this week, including the first news on which actor might take the lead -- and now comes word that 'Kick-Ass' star Aaron Johnson has been offered the part.
'Godzilla' hasn't been on the big screen for some time now, and although everyone's a bit preoccupied with superhero movies and 'Star Wars: Episode 7' updates, we're still aching to see this latest reboot of the franchise. While we're waiting for this whole drama with the producers to get sorted out, how about some reports on the plot for 2014's 'Godzilla'?
Updates on the 'Godzilla' reboot have stormed the web as of late, the first instance earlier today in regards to the production start date, for which the studio is eyeing March, and the second for the ex-'Walking Dead' showrunner Frank Darabont stepping in to pen a final rewrite of the script. With all this talk swirling about, it's now being reported that the shortlist of names to take on the lead has surfaced from a number of sources. So which actors are getting the most buzz?
Legendary's 'Godzilla' presentation was a huge hit at last year's Comic-Con, but the film wasn't scheduled to head into production until this March -- and with Frank Darabont being brought in for rewrites on the script, they better get crackin'.
Back at Comic-Con 2012, we saw a surprise teaser trailer for the 'Godzilla' reboot. It looked amazing. But what we didn't get was any clear idea when the film would start filming or hit theaters. It was all theoretically possible that the film would fall apart. But today we get some good news as it's confirmed that the new era of 'Godzilla' will begin filming in March.
The first 'Godzilla' trailer is coming, folks. Are you prepared? We know we are, especially if it's along the lines of the mega-cool preview shown at San Diego Comic-Con this past July. From the looks of the very first image (unofficially) released, it would seem as though it will be indeed. Check it out after the break!
