Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, in association with Disruption Entertainment are starting production on the huge big-budget epic feature film "Godzilla", and shooting is scheduled to begin soon in Hawaii. The film's casting directors are holding an open casting call for speaking roles and extras. Shooting is taking place in various locations in Hawaii. Both adults and children are needed.

The filmmakers will return Godzilla to its epic roots with a gritty, realistic action film shot in 3-D. This version of "Gojira" will be a terrifying force of nature, and the film will add a very compelling human drama involving two new monsters that will also be wreaking havoc. The director has said that he is going to take the story very seriously, as he has wanted to see this movie this way all his life. He stated, "Imagine if this really happened, as crazy as it sounds, what would it really be like?" The plot of this film will revolve around the story of an individual soldier.

Starring in "Godzilla" is BAFTA Awards Rising Star Award nominee Aaron Taylor-Johnson, an English actor who began performing at six years of age. Taylor-Johnson recently starred in "Anna Karenina" opposite Keira Knightley. That film has been nominated for four Academy Awards. BAFTA Awards EE Rising Star Award nominee Elizabeth Olsen is playing a lead role "Godzilla". Olsen is an exceptionally beautiful and talented actress who recently completed filming on "Oldboy" starring opposite Samuel L. Jackson and Josh Brolin. Four-time Golden Globe Award nominee Bryan Cranston, who just finished working on "Eye of Winter", is also starring. Ken Watanabe, Juliette Binoche, and David Strathairn roundout the cast.

Primetime Emmy Award nominee Gareth Edwards will direct "Godzilla" from a screenplay written by three-time Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont. Dave Callaham wrote the original draft of the script, David S. Goyer was brought in to rewrite Callaham's draft, but was unable to finish due to scheduling conflicts. Then Max Borenstein came onboard to finish the script. Darabont was brought in on January 7, 2013 to do rewrites and polish the screenplay. Gareth Edwards is a British film director who is best known for directing, writing, and doing the visual effects for the independent film "Monsters," his feature film directorial debut.

Executive producing "Godzilla" is Legendary Pictures SVP of Creative Affairs Alex Garcia. Also executive producing is Yoshimitsu Banno, who directed and wrote the 1971 film "Godzilla vs. Hedorah". Patricia Whitcher will serve as executive producer alongside Kenji Okuhira. Legendary Pictures Chairman and CEO Thomas Tull and President and Chief Creative Officer Jon Jashni are producing. Mary Parent will oversee production for Disruption Entertainment.
