Pacific Rim | Join the Jaeger Uprising!

Pacific Rim | Join the Jaeger Uprising!

Have you got what it takes to save our world from the threat of the Kaiju? Maybe you could be a Jaeger pilot!

While I greatly enjoyed Pacific Rim way back in 2013, not everyone else did including fellow Unheard Nerd writer Will.

The chances of a sequel hung in the balance for some time before a decision was finally made. Unfortunately, Pacific Rim‘s director, Guillermo Del Toro, won’t be returning for this smaller budgeted film. The reins have been handed over to Steven S. DeKnight who was a producer of such shows as Marvel’s Daredevil, Smallville, and Dollhouse.

The same is also true of the main cast of which only Charlie Day and Burn Gorman return as the two crazy scientists along with Rinko Kikuchi as Mako Mori.

Taking the lead is John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens) as Jake Pentecost, a relation to Idris Elba’s character from the original film.

Whilst we await the first trailer, the marketing has begun in earnest. While this recruitment video reveals nothing new about the Jaeger process, we do get a glimpse at some new models as well as Jake Pentecost himself.
