Pacific Rim 2 Shooting Dates and New Cast Member Revealed
Pacific Rim 2 is kicking into gear—and much sooner than any of us expected. After years of delays and hemming and hawing, the sequel is confirmed to start filming later this year. In case we still don't know they mean business, the film announced shooting locations and a new cast member in Chinese actress Jing Tian.

According to the announcement, the sequel will start filming in November in Australia. As was previously announced, Guillermo del Toro is no longer directing, but is still producing, and the film will now be helmed by Daredevil's Steven S. DeKnight. John Boyega will star as the son of Idris Elba's character from the original, while Scott Eastwood and newcomer Cailee Spaeny co-star. Yesterday, it was also announced that Chinese actress Jing Tian had been cast in an unspecified role. 



Tian has several credits to her name, including Special ID with Donnie Yen and Police Story 2013 with Jackie Chan. She will also have a role in the upcoming Kong: Skull Island, which co-stars Tom Hiddleston and Oscar winner/Captain Marvel actress Brie Larson. 

Pacific Rim 2 is slated to hit theaters on February 23, 2018.
