Pacific Rim 2: Jing Tian Joins Cast, Production To Begin In November

22 September 2016 10:51 AM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

So, it’s happening, guys. It’s actually happening.

Yes, Pacific Rim was a film that, on a $190 million budget, didn’t perform too well in North America, but the film’s performance overseas proved that the demand for a sequel is still there. Everything seemed to be set, and then-director Guillermo del Toro was even in pre-production around this time last year when the film was put on hold. While del Toro has stayed on board as producer, Daredevil Season 1 showrunner Steven S. DeKnight has taken over directorial duties to the sequel which, when last we heard, was titled Pacific Rim: Maelstrom

Bits and pieces of news regarding the project have dropped since then. We know that Charlie Hunnam is not returning, and in his place will be Star Wars: The Force Awakens leading man John Boyega, but specifics still eluded us. In many ways, this sequel had always »

The Latest Addition To The Cast Of Pacific Rim 2 Is Kong: Skull Island Actress Jing Tian

22 September 2016 6:25 AM, PDT | ComicBookMovie.com | See recent ComicBookMovie news »

28-year-old actress Jing Tian may not be too familiar to Us audiences yet, but she is most definitely a star in her native China, having featured in numerous movies and TV shows over the past 8 years or so. Now, she's set to appear in both Kong: Skull island and The Great Wall, and Legendary has announced that she's also booked a role in the sequel to Guillermo del Toro's divisive monster-mash, Pacific Rim. No details on who Tian will be playing were provided, but chances are she'll be suiting up as a jaeger pilot with John Boyega's new lead character. They’ll both join Suicide Squad‘s Scott Eastwood and the recently announced Cailee Spaeny. Pacific Rim 2 (possibly subtitled, "Maelstrom") will be directed by former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight, and is scheduled to hit theaters on February 23, 2018. »

Pacific Rim 2 Adds Kong: Skull Island Actress Jing Tian

21 September 2016 5:49 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It wasn’t too long ago that Pacific Rim 2 was put on indefinite hold by Universal and Legendary Pictures, but the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s divisive monsters vs. robots smash-em-up was thrown a lifeline when Legendary sold the rights to a Chinese conglomerate, and former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight signed on to helm the picture.

Since then, the casting announcements have begun to intensify, and the latest addition is Chinese actress Jing Tian. She won’t be too familiar to Us audiences just yet, but that may change very soon.

The 28-year-old actress has appeared in numerous Chinese productions, such as Special ID, Police Story: Lockdown and Dragon Nest: Warriors’ Dawn, but she also has fairly substantial roles in both The Great Wall and Kong: Skull Island lined up.

Details on her character in Pacific Rim 2 remain under wraps for now, but there’s a good chance »
