Meet the new lead for ‘Pacific Rim 2’


The sequel to Guillermo Del Toro’s monster versus machine film, Pacific Rim, will feature John Boyega as the leading man.

Boyega, who is most likely known to the world as stormtrooper turned rebel Finn, is gaining traction after his breakout performance in last year’s incredibly anticipated film, The Force Awakens.

Speaking on the casting, Del Toro says;

I am very proud and happy to welcome John into a fantastic sandbox. The ‘Pacific Rim’ universe will be reinforced with him as a leading man as it continues to be a multicultural, multi-layered world. “The World saving the world” was our goal and I couldn’t think of a better man for the job.

The sequel does not yet have an official release date.
