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.
