Bryan Cranston & Elizabeth Olsen In Talks For GODZILLA Reboot

Here is some Godzilla news. The film which is set to start shooting soon has been casting its leads, and now according to a new report, both Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen are in talks for the upcoming film, directed by Gareth Edwards. Check it out...


Even though there has been some minor setbacks, the Godzilla reboot from Legendary Pictures, directed Gareth Edwards (Monsters), is moving ahead as planned. The film is set to start shooting in March, with a planned May 16, 2014 release date. Recently, it was revealed that Frank Darabont has been hired to rewrite the script, and that Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) is in talks for the lead. Now, according to Variety, Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene) are in talks to join the film:

"While Legendary Pictures awaits a Frank Darabont polish on its "Godzilla" script, the studio continues to assemble its cast, entering talks with Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston to co-star. Aaron Johnson is also in talks. Sources stress that no deals will be done until the finished script materializes."

The report also mentions that Paramount Pictures is interested in Olsen for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, and that she tested for female lead in Captain America: Winter Soldier (that role went to Emily VanCamp). What do you think of this news?
