Actress Elizabeth Olsen has confirmed that she will be the female lead in the new "Godzilla" film.

Olsen, 23, has signed up for the Warner Bros' reboot of the monster franchise and she has promised fans the film will be returning to its' original dark Japanese roots as opposed to the 1998 film which starred Matthew Broderick, reported Ace Showbiz.

"It's definitely going to be different. It's not light-hearted fare. It's going back to its roots and its core - the reason why the Japanese made it, kind of," she said. The actress, who is the younger sister of fashion designers Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen, was thrilled to be at the BAFTAs.

"It's just really cool to be part of this British tradition. It's great to be here." "Godzilla" remake also has Drew Pearce, Frank Darabont and Max Borenstein serving as the scribes. The production is expected to kick off in March and will hit theatres next year.
