Pacific Rim: Maelstrom adds Jing Tian to its increasing line-up

September 22nd, 2016 by Marc Comments


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.

Pacific Rim Maelstrom will crash down on Feb 23rd, 2018

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….
