Boyega posted the above of his script cover as production kicked off on the movie. Not a lot is known about the plot, save for that it will feature more action between the giant, piloted robots known as Jaegers and the massive creatures from another dimension called Kaiju. Boyega is set as the son of the late Stacker Pentecost, as played by Idris Elba in the first film.
The likes of Cailee Spaeny (Counting To 1000), Tian Jing (Special ID), Levi Meaden (iZombie) and Ukrainian actress Ivanna Sakhno are also in the cast for the movie, which has a script that has seen work from del Toro, Derek Connolly (Jurassic World) and Emily Carmichael, among others.
DeKnight has the cameras rolling now for a 23 February 2018 release.
