Juliette Binoche in Talks to Join GODZILLA Reboot

     February 26, 2013


The cast for director Gareth Edwards’ (Monsters) reboot of Godzilla continues to grow as we move closer towards production.  Aaron Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen are already in talks to topline the pic, and now Variety reports that Oscar-winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Chocolat) has entered negotiations to join the cast.  Plot details are being kept firmly under wraps, but rumors have swirled that the story centers on a soldier and involves at least two monsters in addition to the titular creature.  Bryan Cranston was previously reported as being in talks to sign on as well, but this latest report from Variety makes no mention of the actor.  Hopefully this was simply an oversight and not a signifier that Cranston is no longer circling the pic.

Though Warner Bros. and Legendary are keeping a tight lid on all things Godzilla, it’s clear that they’re roping in some high caliber acting talent to lead the tentpole.  We should hear more casting news soon as production is set to begin this month, with the latest draft of the script penned by Frank DarabontGodzilla opens on May 16, 2014.

    The cast for this is looking pretty solid.

    Now JP4 needs to pick it up for its damn release!

    Here’s an idea: Make Godzilla look like Godzilla and not a giant alligator.

    Not to sound derogatory toward the French, but a French influence didn’t pan out so well in the last Godzilla movie.

    Damn Godzilla has a great cast going for it!

    Something the 98 film didn’t have… I can not wait till next year to see this, I hope Legendary Pictures an Warner Bro’s take on it can repair the damage done back Sony + Tri-Star an there pitiful 98 film.

    Pretty sure that the reason they didn’t mention Cranston is because it’s unnecessary, he’s already in every movie you’re going to see.

    Why are such high level actors agreeing to appear in such childish, unrealistic drivel?

    How absurd, this movie will be rubbish, just like all the others.

    Great casting choices, not only that, but having Frank Darabont penning the final draft is an incredible choice! Tremendous screenwriter. So underused in Hollywood. My interest has amplified!

    Really tragic that such a good actress be reduced to appearing in such worthless, mindless crap.

    I hope she comes to her senses soon and I hope this piece of trash fails at the box office.
