Sally Hawkins To Drop Some Science On Godzilla

sally hawkinsLike the Robocop remake and The Amazing Spider-Man, just to pull a couple of recent examples, the cast for Godzilla is shaping up to be very impressive, and loaded with actors of the highest calibre.

The latest to join Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olson and Juliette Binoche is Sally Hawkins. Deadline say that she’ll be playing “a scientist.” What kind? Some sort of Giantlizardologist?

Aaron Johnson is the actual star of the film, in so much as any human will be.

Legendary and Warner Bros. did throw a lot of very capable writers at this project, with Drew Pearce and Frank Darabont amongst the rewrite staff. The screenplay likely played a part in attracting the on-screen talent, but I expect director Gareth Edwards was an even greater draw. The promise of his debut feature Monsters suggests that Godzilla could end up being something very, very special.
