Need everyone to quit yawning at the idea of another Godzilla reboot? Get Elizabeth Olsen and Bryan Cranston on the line. Variety reports that Olsen "had been on the lookout for a franchise pic," mulling both Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Captain America: Winter Soldier; Cranston has done plenty of big screen work between the last couple seasons of Breaking Bad. Frank Darabont is rewriting the script, Aaron Johnson (Kick-Ass, Savages) is in talks to star, and production is set to begin next month.
