Vera Farmiga has opened up about her role in the upcoming "Godzilla: King of Monsters" revealing that her character may have a way to control the monsters in the film.
“I play a paleobiologist. She has figured out a way to communicate with the creatures and potentially control them using their bioacoustics on a sonar level. So she is like a DJ for the monsters.”
She also spoke about director Michael Dougherty and how he is in many ways a perfectionist wanting several takes to get a scene right.
I don’t mind it. Except for when there is cork being thrown at you and wind machines blowing down your ear and up your nostrils. I don’t mind it. I like to have as many takes. Of course, it depends on the film and the emotional output of the scene. It depends on a lot. But I am not really ready to talk about the film quite yet, because I have such a one track mind.”
The actress also expressed that in her opinion Godzilla was more than just the savior of mankind in the film believing that the monster was a champion for the environment as well.
“And ‘Godzilla’ to me isn’t a film about monsters. It is a film about saving the environment. When it comes down to it that’s what emerged to me off the written page, and so I find that there has to be a little parable in it that makes me interested.”
Though this little tidbit may get under the skin of some monster fans it should be noted that Godzilla movies have often taken on both political and environmental issues, most notably in the original "Gojira", "Godzilla vs The Smog Monster" and "Godzilla Vs Biollante".
