So, what do you get when you mix Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston, David Strathairn, Ken Watanabe and Juliette Binoche? Nope, not a Euro-flavored film about the intersecting lives of a multi-culti group of beautiful looking people living in, oh I dunno, Paris. Instead it’s the cast of “Godzilla.” And the ensemble has just gotten even more puzzling.
Brit actress Sally Hawkins — who put the happy-go-lucky in “Happy-Go-Lucky” and “Made In Dagenham,” and featured in fare such as “Never Let Me Go,” “Jane Eyre,” “Submarine” and more — has come aboard the picture. And that’s all we can tell. The Gareth Edwards-directed picture is now shooting, but there are no details (though we bet it involves a monster and stuff getting exploded), so no idea what her role is at this point. But our guess is that the disaster in the movie maybe is globe-spanning in nature, given the variety of the cast. But again, just a shot in the dark, because who knows. But man, kudos for Edwards for snaring arthouse talent for his tentpole.
Anyway, we’ll find out what this all adds up to when the movie stomps into theaters on May 16, 2014. [Deadline]
