Aaron Taylor-Johnson Discusses Working On “Godzilla”

July 10, 2013

In the latest issue of Total Film, actor Aaron Taylor-Johnson (Kick-Ass) discusses filming the upcoming remake of GODZILLA produced by Warner Bros. and Legendary Pictures.

He compared the experience to working on a independent film. “The Godzilla crew is such a small group of people that it feels more like an independent movie than anything I’ve ever worked on.”

He also reveals that barely any green screen has been used, stating that director Gareth Edwards has filmed “everything” on location, and will add the CGI afterwards. “I’ve hardly done any green screen stuff for it, he’s [Edwards] really clever at doing the special effects. We’ll shoot everything raw on location, on the streets, and he’s going to put it all around us.”

Lastly, Taylor-Johnson comments on his training for his part as a soldier. “There’s an etiquette for guys in the military, so there was training for that, how to hold guns and how to run and to talk to other officers. I love all that.”

Godzilla was recently confirmed to make an appearance at San Diego Comic-Con later next week, as a part of WB/Legendary’s panel. Hopefully we’ll get a teaser trailer soon.

Catch Taylor-Johnson in Kick-Ass 2, which hits theaters August 16th. He is also reportedly at the top of Marvel’s shortlist to play Pietro Maximoff/Quicksilver in The Avengers 2, which arrives May 1st, 2015.

Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston.

The film is set to hit theaters May 16th, 2014 in 3D.
