Elizabeth Olsen is Serious About Godzilla





Absolute Radio caught up with Elizabeth Olsen, who took a moment to talk about Gareth Edwards' upcoming take on the king of the monsters, Godzilla, and we really like what we're hearing.

Olsen and Bryan Cranston are in talks to co-star in the film along with the previously announced Aaron Johnson. Sources stress that no deals will be done until the finished script materializes, but her talking about the flick seems to be a pretty clear indication that Olsen is indeed involved!

Directed by Gareth Edwards from a script now being polished by Frank Darabont, Godzilla is still on course to begin production in March with the film dated for a May 16, 2014, release.

"It's definitely not lighthearted," says Olsen of the new flick while at today's BAFTAs. "It's going back to the roots of the original Japanese film."

I can't wait to see what Gareth Edwards does with this. It's not like Godzilla is complex storytelling anyway.

I see your sarcasm and I raise you a painful reality. At this rate, it looks like Godzilla's best days are past him.

I wasn't being sarcastic. Godzilla movies are fun as hell, but they're not complex storylines. Convoluted? Sure. But not complex. I think this is going to be a fun scifi action movie.

"It's definitely not lighthearted," says Olsen of the new flick while at today's BAFTAs. "It's going back to the roots of the original Japanese film." Moments later she turned to the publicist and asked "Was that the buzzword phrase I was supposed to use? It's Japanese, not Chinese, right?"
