No Guillermo del Toro won’t be back to direct, but the fact they got the show-runner from HBO’s Spartacus and Netflix’s Daredevil Steven S. DeKnight will be directing the film which will star The Force Awakens’ John Boyega as the son of Idris Elba’s character from the original. Boyega will be joined by Cailee Spaeny, Scott Eastwood, Adria Arjona, Mackenyu Maeda, Jing Tian, and Levi Meaden.
Boyega went to his instagram to confirm the title that had been rumored for some time now, which will officially be Pacifim Rim: Maelstrom.
It’s not that shocking if you have been following the news of this sequel on my site or anywhere on the internet, but that at least confirms they are sticking with the plan that was likely laid down by original director Guillermo del Toro.
