Sally Hawkins joins the cast of <strong><em>Godzilla</em></strong>
Sally Hawkins has landed the final leading role in the Godzilla remake, which is currently shooting in Vancouver.

The actress will portray a scientist alongside Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Ken Watanabe, and David Strathairn. Details regarding the story are slim at this point, but, judging from the set photos and videos that emerged last month, there will be destruction aplenty in this big-budget reboot.

Gareth Edwards is directing from a screenplay by Dave Callaham, Max Borenstein, and Frank Darabont.

Sally Hawkins most recently starred in Jane Eyre and Great Expectations. She won a Golden Globe award in 2009 for her performance in Happy-Go-Lucky.
