Elizabeth 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.

You can check out the full interview below:

Godzilla was released May 16th, 2014 and stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Cameron Adams, Ken Watanabe, Bryan Cranston, Elizabeth Olsen, Carson Bolde, Sally Hawkins, Juliette Binoche. The film is directed by Gareth Edwards.
