John Boyega Lands Lead in 'Pacific Rim' Sequel!

John Boyega has just landed the leading role in the second installment of the Pacific Rim franchise!

The 24-year-old actor will portray the son of Idris Elba, who played the role of Stacker Pentecost in the 2013 film.

“I am very proud and happy to welcome John into a fantastic sandbox. The Pacific Rim universe will be reinforced with him as a leading man as it continues to be a multicultural, multi-layered world. ‘The World saving the world’ was our goal and I couldn’t think of a better man for the job,” the director of the first film, Guillermo del Toro, said in a statement (via Deadline).
