And the cast for Guillermo del Toro’s latest monster mash, Pacific Rim, continues to grow bigger. That’s right, kids. Who’s the latest addition to sign up for active duty? Read on for all of the details.
According to Variety Diego Klattenhoff (pictured right; “Homeland”) has joined the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s epic actioner that pits invading monsters against robots.
Charlie Hunnam and Idris Elba star alongside Charlie Day, Willem Dafoe, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky and Clifton Collins Jr.
Klattenhoff’s role is being kept under wraps, though he is expected to appear in the film’s opening scene.
Travis Beacham’s script is set in 2025, the 12th year of a war against alien creatures who reside in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. The story finds a group of humans banding together to create and pilot massive robots to fight the giant creatures threatening to destroy Earth.
Pacific Rim is one of the first titles that Legendary Pictures is fully self-financing, after having co-financed and produced most of its films with Warner Bros., which will release the film on July 12, 2013.
