Charlie Hunnam Confirms He Won't Be in 'Pacific Rim 2'

Charlie Hunnam has confirmed that he will not be in the movie Pacific Rim 2 due to availability issues.

“I’m very excited about it. I’m glad they’re making it. I think it’s going to be great,” the 36-year-old actor told Yahoo at Comic-Con.

“I read an early draft of what they’re doing. There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable,” Charlie added. “They have a very definite schedule that they have to film because of politics and business surrounding filmmaking. Sometimes, non-creative decisions will dictate how something unfolds, which seems backwards in fact that we’re making art, or at least aspiring to make art. It just ended being unfortunately something we couldn’t remedy because by the time they got their schedule, we realized I wasn’t available.

“I think they’re on to something exciting. It’s a significant progression, which you always hope it will be,” Charlie said. “It feels like they’re really aspiring to push this thing forward and do something original with the sequel.”

John Boyega is set to star in the upcoming film, slated for release in February 2018.

    As much as I want a sequel to Pacific Rim, I refuse to see it if Charlie Hunnam isn’t in it.
