You may remember that Anne Hathaway is set to star in a film (directed by a man named after a crisp) that’s described as half Being John Malkovich and half Godzilla, about a woman who gets dumped only to find herself telepathically connected to a giant lizard terrorizing Asia.
No? Doesn’t stand out in your memory? Well, this classic boy-meets-girl-meets-200-ft-lizard story (which is called Colossal) has added a new cast member, according to Variety – Dan Stevens, best known for using women as sticks and driving too quickly round corners in ITV’s Downton Abbey.
Apparently Stevens will play Hathaway’s ex-boyfriend who later tries to win her back, though really his involvement just makes us pine for a Downton finale where the Dowager Countess battles off a collection of Kaiju monsters with a few waspish put-downs. Carson would probably raise both eyebrows at that one.
Colossal will be in cinemas in 2016, and in our hearts forever
