According to Deadline, Aaron Johnson, the star of Kick-Ass and Kick-Ass 2: Balls To The Wall, has been offered the lead role in Gareth Edwards and Frank Darabont’s eagerly anticipated Godzilla reboot.

Odds are this is the soldier, mentioned in yesterday’s story, that acts as our POV character while giant monsters do their smashing and roaring.

Johnson is waiting to see Darabont’s rewritten script before committing – wise man!

Godzilla is in cinemas 16 May 2013.. Pick up Kick-Ass on Blu-ray for £7.27 or DVD for £5.65 from Amazon.co.uk and marvel at Johnson’s jet-pack.
