Henry Cavill, Scoot McNairy, And Caleb Landry Jones Wanted For Lead In GODZILLA, Joseph Gordon-Levitt Passes
Godzilla is about to start production in March so it's casting is in full swing. Variety reports that Henry Cavill (Man of Steel, Immortals), Scoot McNairy (Killing Them Softly, Monsters) and Caleb Landry Jones (Red State, Contraband, X-Men First Class) are being linked for the lead role in the film. HeatVision also mentions Joseph Gordon-Levitt had been offered the role but turned it down. Joseph has recently been linked to both Guardians of The Galaxy (Star-Lord) and Justice League (Batman). Scoot might have the best in with director Gareth Edwards as he starred in his debut film Monsters, which helped him land the Godzilla gig.
