Robert Kazinsky is the latest name to join the cast of Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim, says a story at Variety. Willem Dafoe is also said to be in early discussions to appear.
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.
Kazinsky, who would play a member of Earth’s resistance, is best known for his role on the UK series “EastEnders.” He’s also slated to appear in the currently-unscheduled Red Tails, which completed production some time ago.
Pacific Rim is currently aiming for a July 12, 2013 release.
