Charlie Hunnam won’t be back for Pacific Rim 2

July 26th, 2016 by Marc Comments


Are we really crying out for a sequel to Pacific Rim?

While the first film, by director Guillermo Del Toro, looked stunning on the big screen, the story definitely lacked something.

And with the Mexican moviemaker not returning for the sequel, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, it looks like one of the stars of the original won’t be returning either.

In the video below, courtesy of Yahoo, the star revealed his reasoning for not returning as Raleigh Becket in Steven S. DeKnight’s sequel.

Pacific Rim: Maelstrom arrives at theaters on August 4, 2017.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
