Universal Pictures and Legendary announced today that John Boyega will be re-cancelling the apocalypse on February 23, 2018 in Pacific Rim 2. Boyega will be playing the son of Stacker Pentecost, Idris Elba’s character from the first film. The original film made a bit over $100 million in the U.S. and another $300 million world wide.
Guillermo del Toro won’t be directing, but he will be an Executive Producer. Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) is taking over the directing chair and Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) is writing the script based on an earlier piece by del Toro, Travis Beacham, Zak Penn, and Jon Spaihts.
