Production has officially kicked off on the “Pacific Rim” sequel in Australia with actor John Boyega confirming that the film is going by the title “Pacific Rim: Maelstrom”.
Boyega shared a photo of his script from the set, he plays the son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba). The first film saw the rift between dimensions destroyed, presumably preventing the giant monsters from returning.
Scott Eastwood, Cailee Spaeny and Jing Tian also star in the film which Steven S. DeKnight is directing and Guillermo del Toro is producing. The film is targeting a February 23rd 2018 release.
