John Boyega, or Finn as most geeks/nerds know him, has signed on to star in Pacific Rim 2. Boyega will be playing as Stacker Pentecost’s son. The follow up to Pacific Rim will not be directed by Guillermo del Toro, though he will be producing it. However Steven DeKnight who was show runner for Netflix’s Daredevil will be in the director’s seat. Del Toro believes that Boyega will be great in the movie, and will bring new life into the movie. The movie was very nearly cancelled, so fans get hype since this new casting decision means that the movie is finally filming again.
