Long ago, humanity defeated the Kaiju. Now, they’re evacuating Australia. Join a pair of siblings and their battered, long-abandoned Jaegar as they battle across a continent of danger in search of their parents.
Craig Kyle (Thor: Ragnarok) and Greg Johnson (X-Men: Evolution) will serve as showrunners for the Legendary Entertainment production.
The original Pacific Rim movie directed and co-written by Guillermo del Toro debuted in 2013 and starred Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Ron Perlman, and Charlie Day. Also written by Travis Beacham, the film followed a waging war between humankind and monstrous sea creatures where a former pilot and a trainee are paired up to drive a seemingly obsolete special weapon in a desperate effort to save the world from the apocalypse. The movie was followed-up by Pacific Rim: Uprising in 2018 from Steven S. DeKnight, starring John Boyega, Scott Eastwood, and Cailee Spaeny.
