We know that The Force Awakens star John Boyega is the lead in the Pacific Rim sequel over at Legendary (here) and just a few days ago we learned a new female character had been cast (here) and Scott Eastwood too is involved and now we have another big announcement.
Jing Tian has joined the cast of the anticipated sequel that will be produced by Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and Guillermo Del Toro. The actress will be in Skull Island next year.
Not a lot is known about the sequel yet – although we know Idris Elba won’t be returning and Boyega will play his son, no word on who anyone else is playing yet, however. We also know original movie star Charlie Hunnam won’t be back.
