Sally Hawkins has joined the cast of the new Godzilla movie.

The Made In Dagenham star will play a scientist in the sci-fi flick, according to Deadline.

Sally, 36, is the latest cast member announced for the remake of the cinema classic.

Other actors working on the film include Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Elizabeth Olsen, Ken Watanabe, David Strathairn, Bryan Cranston and Juliette Binoche.

The giant reptile action film is currently shooting in Canada and is due to be released next year.

Not much is known about what the exact storyline will be, but it's thought director Gareth Edwards wants to give the tale more of a human angle.

Director Guillermo del Toro - who is making a film called Pacific Rim about giant robots battling giant monsters - recently told Collider that he would love to see a crossover film between his project and Godzilla.

He said: "I would love to see a jaeger (robot) and Godzilla duke it out. That would be too much for the human brain. But I don't think there are plans on that.

"I don't even know what direction they're taking Godzilla in. I know that it's grounded differently... Godzilla is more realistic, somewhat. That's my thinking. That's what I've heard. I don't even know which way they're going."

Sally was last seen in Great Expectations as Mrs Joe and this year will appear in comedy Almost Christmas as well as Woody Allen film Blue Jasmine.
