‘Godzilla’ Reboot Stays True to Its Japanese Roots Says Elizabeth Olsen

Elizabeth Olsen says Godzilla is sticking to its Japanese rootsElizabeth Olsen has given fans of Ishirô Honda's Godzilla a glimmer of hope, revealing that the new film will be in the same vein as the classic sci-fi thriller.

The actress was interviewed at this year's BAFTAs and said this about Gareth Edwards' upcoming reboot.

"It's definitely not lighthearted. It's kind of going back to its roots of the original Japanese film."

Ishirô Honda's original film followed the giant monster, mutated by nuclear radiation, as he ravaged Japan and brought back the horrors of nuclear devastation to the country. With no official cast announced, Elizabeth Olsen, Bryan Cranston and Aaron Johnson are rumored to have key roles.

Godzilla was released May 16th, 2014.
