However, it&#39;s not for lack of trying.</p> <p>He said&nbsp;&ldquo;I&rsquo;m very excited about it. I&rsquo;m glad they&rsquo;re making it,&rdquo; but his shooting schedule just wouldn&#39;t fit the demands of the PAC RIM itinerary. He&nbsp;<em>will</em>&nbsp;however, be appearing in the 2017 feature KING ARTHUR: LEGEND OF THE SWORD, so there&#39;s that.</p> <p>The role of Handsome White Dude will be filled instead by Scot Eastwood, who has now officially joined the cast.</p> <p>Production begins in the fourth quarter of this year, with STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS&#39; John Boyega attached to play the son of Idris Elba&#39;s character in the original.</p> <p>PACIFIC RIM 2 will be helmed by Daredevil season 1 showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, replacing original director del Toro, who remains on board as a producer. The script was penned&nbsp;by <a href="http://www.joblo.com/horror-movies/reviews/jurassic-world">JURASSIC WORLD</a> screenwriter Derek Connolly.</p> <div align="center"><img alt="" src="/images_arrownews/2pacrim-jb.jpg" title="" /></div>
