Aftermath star Levi Meaden to fight kaiju in Pacific Rim 2

Pacific Rim 2 Levi Meaden

PACIFIC RIM 2 has continued its casting process, nabbing another young star to prove themselves in a big Hollywood project. The latest addition is Levi Meaden, who is perhaps best known for playing the character Matt Copeland in the show Aftermath. He has also appeared in Legends of Tomorrow, The Killing, and The 100, as well as David DeCoteau's 1313: BIGFOOT ISLAND, which, if nothing else, at least proves that he looks good shirtless. Charlie Hunnam, step aside.

Meaden will be playing Ilya, an irreverent and offbeat cadet. That's not a lot of information to go on, but at least it's more than we've gotten for pretty much anyone else. He will be joining a cast that also includes Scot Eastwood, Jing TIan, Cailee Spaeny, and John Boyega, who will play the son of Idris Elba's character in the original.

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 by JURASSIC WORLD screenwriter Derek Connolly.

The film is currently scheduled for theatrical release on February 23, 2018.
