Japanese living legend Akira Takarada has survived six Godzilla movies over the decades, and the prolific actor is looking for another reason to get in the cinema ring with Big G. From a fan standpoint this would be a glorious gift to us so let’s try and make it happen.
Doing so is simple. Just visit the Legendary Pictures: Cast Akira Takarada in the new Godzilla Movie Facebook Group, and show your support by joining and spreading the word.
To date Takarada has been seen in the original Godzilla King of the Monsters, Mothra vs. Godzilla, Godzilla vs. Monster Zero, Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, Godzilla vs. Mothra (1992), Godzilla: Final Wars and even the wonderfully wacky King Kong Escapes! Can you think of an actor with more cred? Come on, Legendary! Give us this and we’ll love you forever!
As it stands David Strathairn, Aaron Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, and Bryan Cranston are all in talks to star. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni will produce along with Mary Parent, who helped produce Pacific Rim for Legendary.
Directed by Gareth Edwards from a script polished by Frank Darabont, Godzilla is still on course to begin production this month with the film dated for a May 16, 2014, release.
Stay glued for more as it comes.
