Juliette Binoche Joins Quiet, Seductive Drama of 'Godzilla'


Recognizing the French art-house film beneath the scales--seeing that each stomped building is just another soul trampled in time's unstoppable path, hearing the whispered eroticism in each atomic breath--Academy Award-winner Juliette Binoche has reportedly entered talks to join Legendary Pictures' Godzilla reboot.

If negotiations work out before she realizes how weird it is that she would be in a Godzilla movie, Binoche would join Aaron Johnson, Bryan Cranston and Elizabeth Olsen in roles that are all being kept secret for now. Gareth Edwards is directing from a script currently getting another re-write from Frank Darabont.

While the film would be out-of-character for Binoche, it's not the first time she's been asked to fight a massive, destructive creatures: she was previously offered Laura Dern's role of Dr. Ellie Sattler in Jurassic Park, which she turned down to instead make Krzysztof Kieślowski's Three Colors: Blue, while back in 2010, she refused all-out battle at the provocations of the beast that is Gerard Depardieu.
