Actress and singer Cailee Spaeny has been cast as the female lead in Pacific Rim 2.
Details surrounding her character are unknown at this time.
Former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight is directing the Sci-Fi sequel, which also stars John Boyega of Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Scott Eastwood, last seen in David Ayer's Suicide Squad.
Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and Guillermo del Toro will produce the action adventure film along with Boyega and Femi Oguns while Cale Boyter will executive produce.
Guillermo del Toro directed the first Pacific Rim in 2013. Pitting monstrous Kaiju against robotic Jaegers, that film starred the likes of Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman.
Plot details surrounding the sequel are slim, but we do know that John Boyega will play the son of Idris Elba's character, Stacker Pentecost, who sacrificed himself in the first movie.
The film begins production this November and will be released February 23, 2018.
