I cannot blame you if you thought that Pacific Rim 2 is not happening, since the ending of the original movie did not provide any hint of a sequel. However, after photos of the clapboard and scripts found their way online, I can’t help but be excited since Pacific Rim is one of the first successful Mech movie.
Now stars of the sequel are posting photos while on set while with other casts.
All of Steven S. DeKnight, Director of the movie, Instagram posts are all related to the movie.
Now we know that “Pacific Rim: Maelstrom” was only a working title.
Then there’s Scott Eastwood, one of the new protagonist of the movies, following the departure of Charlie Hunnam, who played Raleigh Becket. Scott Eastwood will a new Jaeger pilot named Nate Lambert.
