Elizabeth OlsenIt has been a few days since the world learned that Elizabeth Olsen was up for a role in Gareth Edward’s upcoming reboot of the Godzilla franchise.  On the BAFTA red carpet Olsen confirmed her involvement in the project .

“It’s definitely not lighthearted,” Olsen says of Edwards’ take. “It’s kind of going back to its roots of the original Japanese film.”

The 1954 original was directed by IshirĂ´ Honda and the Godzilla character (originally Gojira) was designed to serve as an allegory for nuclear weapons. Especially compared to some of the campier sequels that would follow, Godzilla is a decidedly somber film and it appears that that tone will be emulated in Edwards’ version.

Likely to also star Bryan Cranston and Aaron Johnson, Godzilla hits theaters May 16, 2014
