Anne Hathway to star in Godzilla meets Lost in Translation film, Colossal


Now here's a mash-up that tickles my funny bone. Writer/director Nacho Vigalondo (OPEN WINDOWS, TIMECRIMES) is dipping his toes into the kaiju pool to deliver what he calls his most ambitious and personal story so far. GODZILLA meets LOST IN TRANSLATION is how it's being billed, and it's just picked up a major lead actress in Anne Hathaway.

The synopsis as reported by The Hollywood Reporter:

In the movie — described as Godzilla meets Lost in Translation — Hathaway will play Gloria, an ordinary woman who, after losing her job and her fiancé, decides to leave her life in New York to move back to her hometown.

But when news reports surface that a giant lizard is destroying the city of Tokyo, Gloria gradually comes to realize that she is strangely connected to these far-off events via the power of her mind. In order to prevent further destruction, Gloria needs to determine why her seemingly insignificant existence has such a colossal effect on the fate of the world.

I don't know about you, but that sounds like a genre film that I need to see immediately! I haven't checked out director Vigalondo's previous work, but given the right budget and the right team, this could be a project that gives Legendary Pictures a run for their money. With sequels to GODZILLA and PACIFIC RIM on the horizon, as well as SKULL ISLAND, it sounds like monster movies are making a huge comeback! Any chance Bill Murray could sign up for this?
