Sally Hawkins Joins Godzilla Cast

Sally Hawkins has nabbed the final lead role in Godzilla, the monster movie that Legendary and Warner Bros kicked off shooting last week in Vancouver. Hawkins (Happy Go Lucky) will play a scientist alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, Brian Cranston and Juliette Binoche. Gareth Edwards is directing Godzilla, which is slated for a 3D release on May 16, 2014. Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham wrote the script.

Hawkins recently starred in Constellations, the Nick Payne play that had a sold-out run at the UK’s Royal Court Theatre and then the West End. Her upcoming films include Almost Christmas with Paul Rudd and Paul Giamatti, which will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, and Woody Allen’s Blue Jasmine which opens July 26. She is repped by ICM Partners, Principal LA and John Grant in the UK.

I'm surprised they didn't already have the entire cast filled.

slowly but surely this film is stitching a godzilla movie we want, the 98 version was ok but if they make a more terrifying atmoshere i think that vision would be more acceptable. gareth edwards was i think the director of monsters and he actually made a good monster movie, i hope that atmoshere of uncertainty he made in monsters would also resemble the tone of the new movie godzilla.

It's almost as though the directors and producers want to white-wash this film as much as possible. I think Hollywood is intentionally trying to say, "Godzilla is ours now. We're going to erase all traces of this movie icons Japanese roots."
Maybe I'm wrong, but that's what it feels like.
