Juliette Binoche in Talks for 'Godzilla'
If talks went well, she'll join Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, and Bryan Cranston. The latter three won't sign until the script is finalized, so, presumably, Binoche's contract will also have to wait for the finished script as well.
Speaking of the script, Frank Darabont is putting the finishing touches on a draft previously worked on my Iron Man 3's Drew Pearce.
To be directed by Gareth Edwards, Godzilla will reportedly center on a soldier (Taylor-Johnson) and his girlfriend (Olsen). Cranston will play Taylor-Johnson's grandfather.
Besides Godzilla, there may be two other monsters in the movie.
Godzilla is set for theaters on May 16, 2014. It remains to be seen whether or not the pending lawsuit brought on by producers Dan Lin, Roy Lee, and Doug Davidson against Legendary Pictures will affect the release date.
Legendary is eyeing a March start date.
