Here it is: Ironclad PROOF that there is nothing too inconsequential for the nerd media to report on when it concerns a highly anticipated movie.

If you’re hoping to see shots of the new design for Gareth Edwards’ Godzilla, or watch the Big G in action–you’re SOL.

IF, however, you like pics of abandoned villages and the USS Alameda, get ready for a treat!

This is the downside of having an almost entirely computer generated star: Set photos are gonna mostly look like this:

Gareth Edwards‘ (Monsters) Godzilla reboot happily continues chugging along, and there’s a new set of production stills for us to check out. These pictures back up the earlier video clip that said the military would play a big part in this latest incarnation of Japan’s largest export.

This latest set again features the movies “Human” star Aaron Taylor-Johnson who was last seen all dressed up in Army fatigues.

This time around Taylor-Johnson is in his civies, although still surrounded by military personnel. Perhaps this takes place in the movie before that first set of fully fatigued up stills.

Here’s a short video of the scene and a gallery of pictures:

It’s no news that there’s another Godzilla movie coming up and that right now they’re out hunting heads to fill up the cast list.  As unlikely as it may seem, one person on their target list is Oscar-winner and highly talented actress Juliette Binoche.

Well, damn.  That’s certainly not someone that I’d expect to see gracing the screen next to the big green lizard in yet another Hollywood reboot.  Binoche has made her name in such critically acclaimed films as The English Patient and Chocolat, so it seems like a bit of a downslide to be showing up in Godzilla the 2014 version.  But according to sources, she is indeed in talks to co-star in the flick.

There’s still no word on what the script is going to look like, but other casting talks include big names like Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass), Bryan Cranston (Breaking Bad) and Elizabeth Olsen (Martha Marcy May Marlene).

With a cast like this, Godzilla may actually shape up to be something quite interesting.  Of course, that’s assuming the producers can sell them on it.

The Gareth Edwards’ (Monsters) Godzilla reboot seems to be suffering some of the same collateral damage the monster in question deals to the cities it visits. There’s good news and not so good news for our favorite rampaging atomic monster.

The good news is that Frank Darabont is going to handle the final rewrite of Max Borenstein‘s (Seventh Son) Godzilla script. How is that good? Frank is no stranger to the monster genre with his highly lauded work on The Walking Dead, The Mist, Kenneth Branagh’s Frankenstein, and the 1988 remake of The Blob. He certainly has the writing chops to get this done in a manner fans will enjoy.

The not so good news is that there’s trouble brewing in the Godzilla producers camp. Dan Lin and Roy Lee, who were among the original group of producers who teamed up with Legendary Pictures as the financier-producer are being forced out. Legendary now controls the rights and wants to drop the two producers from the project and bring in Legendary’s Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni, while keeping Brian Rogers, who was on the ground floor of the original deal. The money involved will certainly take this dispute to the courts which might hold up the May 16th 2014 release of the film.

What do you think? Can Darabont deliver, can the possible court cases be settled in time to get the movie made and out to the fans?

As if Japan doesn’t have enough problems right now, it looks like Godzilla is coming back to town.  Legendary Pictures is rebooting the giant lizard and sending him off to destroy more cities in the name of good, old-fashioned, destructive fun.  But before casting and filming can begin, the studio is giving the script one more make-over, courtesy of Drew Pearce, the dude who co-wrote Iron Man 3.

Casting begins in less than a month, so Pearce better work fast.  The word on the street is that he’s only there to adapt the already acceptable script to the proper age of the actors that the studio wants to bring into the film.  They are reportedly targeting older actors and looking to make this Godzilla version more realistic.  Let’s hope it works out, cause previous reboots have been a pure fkn disaster.

A proper trailer for Godzilla is set to crush the world on October 23rd and the movie itself is slotted for a May 16, 2014 release.
