Here are a bunch of new images from the Vancouver set of Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla featuring star Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass). These photos come courtesy of LaineyGossip, who gave the set this perfect title: “Aaron Taylor-Johnson chases Godzilla, rips pants.” I hope you don’t mind that I’ve left out the shots of Johnson spitting and picking his nose. Written by David Callaham (The Expendables), David S. Goyer (the Dark Knight trilogy) and Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son), the film will return the character to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic actioner.
I enjoyed Edwards’ Monsters and I’m definitely looking forward to seeing what he does with this property. Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn, Bryan Crantson and Ken Watanabe also star. Godzilla opens in 3D on May 16, 2014.
Gareth Edwards is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham. Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Alex Garcia and Patricia Whitcher are serving as executive producers alongside Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira. A presentation of Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures, “Godzilla” 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. Legendary Pictures is a division of Legendary Entertainment.
