Here’s the Release Date For the ‘Pacific Rim’ Sequel!

Published

on

On February 23, 2018, Universal Pictures will launch Jaegers into battle in Steven S. DeKnight‘s Pacific Rim 2, which will star John Boyega, who made a name for himself starring in Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Attack the Block.

As previously reported, Boyega will play the son of the character played by Idris Elba in the del Toro-directed original film.

In the 2013 film that was directed by Guillermo del Toro (read our review), as a war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures wages on, a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse.

Derek Connolly, who penned Pacific Rim 2, is currently working on a script for Jurassic World 2 and wrote the script for the upcoming adventure thriller Kong: Skull Island.

There were originally rumors of Pacific Rim becoming part of the King Kong and Godzilla universe, although that’s looking unlikely at this moment.
