Aaron Johnson circling the male lead in <i>Godzilla</i>Anna Karenina and Kick-Ass 2 star Aaron Johnson is considering taking the lead role in Warner Bros.' Godzilla reboot.

We reported earlier this week that The Walking Dead creator Frank Darabont is currently rewriting the screenplay. The actor will reportedly wait until this most recent draft is complete, before making a final decision. David S. Goyer (The Dark Knight Rises), Max Borenstein (The Seventh Son), and Drew Pearce (Iron Man 3) have previously worked on the screenplay.

Gareth Edwards (Monsters) is directing, with Legendary Pictures' Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni producing alongside Mary Parent (Pacific Rim). No production schedule has been released.
