The team behind the Pacific Rim (2013) sequel are continuing their attempts to showcase a global cast, with news arriving via Deadline that Ukrainian actress Ivanna Sakhno will be heading into the Drift for Pacific Rim 2.
Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) is directing this one, stepping in for Guillermo del Toro, who will produce so he can concentrate on other projects. The film, often known as Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, is still largely wrapped in secrecy, though we do know the cast confirmed so far, including John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), Scott Eastwood (Fury), Jian Ting (Special ID), Cailee Spaeny (Counting To 1000), Adria Arjona (True Detective) and Levi Meaden (iZombie).
What Sakhno will be up to is anyone's guess, though given the how the first film went, we are betting she will be pressed into service battling giant Kaiju.
Pacific Rim 2, which will be out in February 2018, is Sakhno's latest stab at breaking into Hollywood after gaining notice in Ukrainian language hits. She is also part of the cast for science fiction horror thriller Viral.
