Pacific Rim 2 Scott Eastwood John Boyega

With PACIFIC RIM 2 finally getting a new release date, there are now rumblings about the first new cast-member to potentially join John Boyega in the upcoming sequel. Deadline is hearing that Legendary Pictures is looking at Scott Eastwood to take on a "key role" in PACIFIC RIM 2. Discussions with Eastwood are still in the very early stages, but if this deal closes, it would be yet another huge blockbuster in Scott Eastwood's future.

Eastwood has been active in Hollywood for over a decade, but it's really only been in the last year or two that his star has started to blow up. With roles in the upcoming SUICIDE SQUAD, SNOWDEN, FAST 8, and LIVE BY NIGHT, Eastwood is on the cusp of becoming a much bigger star. There's no word on what role he would fill in PACIFIC RIM 2, but John Boyega will be playing the son of Idris Elba's Stacker Pentecost. Directed by Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) from a script by Derek Connolly (JURASSIC WORLD), production on the Guillermo del Toro produced PACIFIC RIM 2 is expected to get underway late this year.

PACIFIC RIM 2 is set for a February 23, 2017 release.

John Boyega needs to branch out of SciFi soon...

The guy has a lot of potential, I really hope he doesn't get stuck as "that Sci-Fi guy" and ends up doing shitty Sharknado movies in 10 years. I don't see him as a comic actor, though his timing in Force Awakens was spot on, I can see him doing a lot of good dramas and dark comedies.

Honestly, I've never seen Pacific Rim. To be even more honest, I'm not a huge fan of Guillermo delToro as a director. I know he has a big following, but nothing he's done has really impressed me since Pans Labyrinth. Not saying he's bad, as I've enjoyed most of his films on some level or another, but I do think he's a little overrated.

Basically what I'm saying is, I'm glad to see some fresh blood in this franchise, and if the trailers look good I might be convinced to go back and watch the

Pretty indifferent to Snyder, tbh. Some of his films I enjoy, some I can't sit through. Again, not saying I don't LIKE del Toro or think he lacks talent or style, but I just don't think that style is for me.
