John Boyega Signs on for Pacific Rim Sequel

John Boyega is swapping Jedis for Jaegers, after agreeing to star in Pacific Rim 2.

Boyega will play the of Idris Elba’s character from the first film, Stacker Pentecost, though his new character’s name is not yet known.

Steven S. DeKnight will helm the follow-up, at the request of original director Guillermo Del Toro, who has commented on Boyega’s casting.

“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.”

Filming on Pacific Rim 2 will begin later this year.
