Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam gets Rim job from Guillermo del Toro

Conflicted "Sons of Anarchy" club VP Charlie Hunnam knows about riding machines, but he'll really step it up when he goes from motorcycles to monster-fighting mechs in filmmaker Guillermo del Toro's PACIFIC RIM.

The hunky Brit (who seemed to be an early fan fave for THOR) will take the lead in the big-budget action/sci-fi flick, which involves massive city-demolishing creatures that emerge from an undersea dimensional rift in the Pacific. Several affected countries team up to battle the threat with huge mechanized combat units, each of which require a pair of specially trained pilots.

Del Toro moved on to Relativity's kaiju-packed FX epic when plans for the sticky horrors of his adaptation of HP Lovecraft's AT THE MOUNTAINS OF MADNESS fell apart at Universal.

The project will likely feature other attractive cast members of varying ethnicity to populate the international task force assigned with battling the towering beasts. Ron Perlman will play a grizzled military veteran (okay, that's complete speculation, but no less probable).

Hunnam is working on the crime drama BLACKBIRD with Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde before hopping back on the hog for the fourth season of "Sons".

Extra Tidbit: Hunnam had a small role in CHILDREN OF MEN as a member of the underground group The Fishes, although you might not have recognized him with the dreds.

SOA!

I quietly hoping Pacific Rim is actually a Godzilla reboot. Maybe Hunnam and GDT can talk Perlman into HELLBOY 3!!!(Oh and the title of this Headline might be the worst ever. So congrats on that.)

He prolly had to give GdT a rim job to get this part. Makes me wonder if Johnny Depp gave Gore the angry pirate for the last two pirates scripts

Green Street Hooligans is Hunams best stuff by far. Tidbit: I love the van scene when Clive Owen is blindfolded and gives the classic, "Jesus, your breath stinks!" quote. I laugh loudly everytime I watch that scene.

The plot sounds like a terrible regurgitation of 100 different anime cartoons, but if Del Toro is involved I guess I'm interested

Hunnam was the Hippie douche white boy terrorist?

My hopes for this movie could not be higher. Its Guillermo Del Toro, so you know those monsters AND the mechs are going to be insane. Perhaps the closest we'll ever get to a Truly big budget remake of Destroy All Monsters.

Movie sounds great.

Good for Hunnam getting a big action role. Guy is a great actor and out of all of my favorite television acotrs, he is one that I am hoping that makes it big after his success on "Sons of Anarchy".
