Godzilla is currently filming in Vancouver, but the cast continues to grow. Last week, it was announced that original Godzilla actor Akira Takarada would have a part in the movie, and we have one more name to add to the list.

Sally Hawkins (pictured below) has joined the movie for a lead role, according to Deadline. The report revealed that she'll be playing a scientist, and also confirmed that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is playing the role of a scientist as well.

As previously reported, Godzilla stars Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Ken Watanabe, Elizabeth Olsen, Juliette Binoche, Richard T. Jones, David Strathairn and Bryan Cranston. Gareth Edwards is directing the film from a screenplay by Max Borenstein, Frank Darabont and Dave Callaham.

The movie will be released to US theaters on May 16th, 2014 and is expected to be presented in 3D. While Warner Bros. will be handling most of the worldwide rollout, Toho will be taking over for the Japanese release.
