Austin Stowell is Cast in Nacho Vigalondo’s Colossal

Posted on: October 17th, 2015

Austin StowellAustin Stowell (Whiplash, Bridge of Spies) has been added to Nacho Vigalondo’s next directorial endeavour Colossal. The film already stars Anne Hathaway and Jason Sudeikis.

Earlier this year the film was hit with a lawsuit when the Japanese company Toho – who have the rights to Godzilla – complained that the film was far too much like, well Godzilla. The film has been described as Godzilla meets Being John Malkovich, but the synopsis follows a giant lizard attacking a city and agreeably, that sounds a lot like Godzilla. No wonder Toho got a bit suspicious of it.

Alas, despite these accusations the film is still on the go-ahead. We love Nacho Vigalondo; Timecrimes was fantastic, Extraterrestrial was a lot of fun and his segment in V/H/S: Viral was one of the strongest. It will be interesting to see what stamp the director can put on a monster movie and the comparison to Being John Malkovich is very intriguing, indeed.

Production on Colossal is due to begin next week.
