Boyega will reportedly star in Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, the follow-up to Guillermo del Toro’s massively successful 2013 Pacific Rim. Charlie Hunnam and Ron Perlman will return, and Boyega will play the son of Idris Elba’s character.
In 2013, the world was properly introduced to Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba when they starred in Pacific Rim. Hunnam and Elba have gone on to become genuine celebrities in their own right, with both having numerous releases this year. Boyega already has one major sci-fi franchise under his belt, so we’re pretty confident he’ll be able to handle whatever alien sea monsters are thrown his way.
The plot for Maelstrom is still under wraps, but we’re expecting some pretty serious robot vs. alien fight sequences.
