ON

Max Martini is the latest name to join the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, according to a story at Variety.

The film, from screenwriter Travis Beacham, is said to be a variation on the Japanese Kaiju genre (giant monsters) and the plot sees a future Earth defending itself from attacking creatures through the use of enormous mechanized robots.

Martini, who has appeared in Saving Private Ryan, Contact and Redbelt, will appear alongside Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Rinko Kikuchi. His part is said to be that of a resistance fighter who goes up against the invading creatures.

The Legendary Pictures production is aiming for a July 12, 2013 release.
