Longtime Guillermo del Toro collaborator Ron Perlman (CRONOS, HELLBOY 1 & 2, BLADE II) has joined the robots-vs-monsters epic PACIFIC RIM, which just commenced production in Toronto. Perlman and del Toro go together like... well, Perlman and del Toro!

Perlman joins Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr. and Charlie Day.

Del Toro himself let the info slip (as unsurprising as it may be) in an interview with Wired.com. Here's a sample of what the director had to say about the production:

"We are working with actors that I absolutely adore. Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman. Its really, its a very, very beautiful poem to giant monsters. Giant monsters versus giant robots. Twenty-five-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters. Were trying to create a world in which the characters are real and how it would affect our world politically, how it would affect the landscape if creatures like this really came out of the sea, etc."

PACIFIC RIM is scheduled to open on MAY 10, 2013.
