In a few weeks, the world’s most revered monster will be reborn as Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures unleash the epic action adventure Godzilla. From visionary director Gareth Edwards, creator of the indie sci-fi cult favorite Monsters, comes a powerful story of human courage and reconciliation in the face of titanic forces of nature, when the awe-inspiring Godzilla rises to restore balance as humanity stands defenseless.
Gareth Edwards directs Godzilla and the film stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Oscar nominee Ken Watanabe (The Last Samurai, Inception), Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene), Oscar winner Juliette Binoche (The English Patient, Cosmopolis) and Sally Hawkins (Blue Jasmine), along with Oscar nominee David Strathairn (Good Night and Good Luck, The Bourne Legacy) and Bryan Cranston (Argo, AMC TV’s hit show Breaking Bad).
Edwards directs the movie from a screenplay by Max Borenstein and a story by David Callaham, based on the character “Godzilla” owned and created by TOHO Company. Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni are producing Godzilla with Mary Parent and Brian Rogers. Patricia Whitcher and Alex Garcia are Godzilla’s executive producers, along with Yoshimitsu Banno and Kenji Okuhira.
The behind-the-scenes creative team includes Oscar-nominated director of photography Seamus McGarvey (Anna Karenina, Atonement); production designer Owen Paterson (The Matrix trilogy); editor Bob Ducsay (Looper); Oscar-nominated costume designer Sharen Davis (Dreamgirls, Ray, Django Unchained); and Oscar-winning visual effects supervisor Jim Rygiel (the Lord of the Rings films). The score is being created by Oscar-nominated composer Alexandre Desplat (Argo, The King’s Speech).
