Although the details are locked up tight, the follow up to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 monsters vs robots smash-em-up hit has another name to add to the cast list, after the announcement of the film’s female lead.

Actress and pop singer Cailee Spaeny, a newcomer to the big screen, has landed the position opposite John Boyega and Scott Eastwood.

Steven S DeKnight is taking del Toro’s space on the director’s chair, with the release date currently slated for 23rd February 2018.

Hidden deep in the woods, past the abandoned insane asylum and long-forgotten summer camp, off the old dirt road, across the creaky timber bridge, lies a log cabin. Under the full moon some have said they've heard blood-curdling howls from deep in the basement, though none have been brave enough to explore further... If they had, the shocking reveal would be that the screams come from old horror VHS tapes, accompanied by the maniacal laugh of Phil Robinson, brought on by comics and wrestling promos. The self-confessed "horror guy", he has also been known to talk about Spider-Man and heavy metal at great, unnecessary lengths. Yes, he knows he needs a haircut.
