Aaron Taylor-Johnson Talks Working On GODZILLA, Says Little Green Screen Was Used
Kick-Ass star Aaron Taylor-Johnson talks about his experience filming Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot, comparing it to working on an independent film. He also comments on the use of green screen on set and his training to play a soldier.
In the latest issue of Total Film, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson discusses filming the upcoming Godzilla reboot from Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures. He says that working with its crew is more like an independent film than what he's done before. "The Godzilla crew is such a small group of people that it feels more like an independent movie than anything I've ever worked on." He also goes on to reveal that he has done little work with green screen on the monster epic, stating that director Gareth Edwards has filmed "everything" on location, and will add the CGI afterwards. "I've hardly done any green screen stuff for it, he's [Edwards] really clever at doing the special effects. We'll shoot everything raw on location, on the streets, and he's going to put it all around us." Finally, Taylor-Johnson comments on his training for his role as a soldier. "There's an etiquette for guys in the military, so there was training for that, how to hold guns and how to run and to talk to other officers. I love all that."
Godzilla was recently confirmed to make an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con later next week, as a part of WB/Legendary's panel. With that in mind, hopefully we'll get a trailer soon. Taylor-Johnson will soon be seen in Kick-Ass 2, which hits theaters August 16th. He is also reportedly at the top of Marvel's shortlist to play Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in The Avengers 2, which arrives May 1st, 2015. Stay tuned to CBM for more news as we have it.
Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. The film is set to hit theaters May 16th, 2014 in 3D.
