Variety reports that both Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen are now in talks to join the May 16, 2014 release. The previously rumored Aaron Johnson is also said to still be in contention for a role.

Based on the classic monster from Toho Co., Ltd, Godzilla is one of the most widely recognized movie monsters worldwide, having been featured in more than 25 films, multiple television programs, video games and book series. Legendary, which has been developing the film project, and its partner Warner Bros. is planning to return the character to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner.

Olsen, meanwhile, debuted in 2011's Silent House and Martha Marcy May Marlene. She will soon be back on the big screen in Spike Lee's Oldboy.

A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the film will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company, except in Japan, where it will be distributed by Toho Co., Ltd. The tentpole film is expected to be presented in 3D.
