Re: Godzilla 2014: Rumors, Pix and filming

^Every Japanese Godzilla film since 1955 has been a sequel to the '54 original (except maybe Godzilla 2000, which was mute on the issue), and Takarada has been in several of them, in a different role each time. He was the reporter lead in Mothra vs. Godzilla, the lead astronaut in Invasion of Astro-Monster (aka Godzilla vs. Monster Zero), the lead in Godzilla vs. the Sea Monster, a government official in Godzilla and Mothra: The Battle for Earth, and the UN Secretary General in Godzilla: Final Wars (as well as the second lead in King Kong Escapes). So his appearance in the 2014 film doesn't necessarily suggest that he'll be playing Ogata. Particularly since we don't know if the new film will be a sequel or a complete reboot.
