Steven S. DeKnight directs Pacific Rim Uprising, the sequel to the epic action-adventure Pacific Rim which Guillermo del Toro created in 2013. With a script penned by Zak Penn, Jon Spaights and Guillermo del Toro, Pacific Rim Uprising will introduce new characters and Jaegers as they combat an evolved Kaiju threat once again for Humanity's survival.

Pacific Rim: Uprising officially wraps filming!

The sequel to Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim, Pacific Rim: Uprising has officially wrapped filming today after a successful 6-month shoot. Having kicked off in Australia last year, production eventually moved to China where the remainder of the film's scenes were shot. John Boyega shared the following photo on Instagram and Twitter to celebrate the culmination:

Boyega and Scott Eastwood are the leads for Uprising, both young Jaeger pilots. Boyega will play the son of Idris Elba's character from the original, Stacker Pentecost. Eastwood's lineage is unknown. It is assumed that they will be piloting the new Gipsy Avenger Jaeger against a host of new Kaiju enemies. Charlie Day, Burn Gorman and potentially Rinko Kikuchi will all be reprising their roles as well! Charlie Hunnam is not expected to return, however.

Prepare for a ridiculously fun marketing campaign ahead as Pacific Rim: Uprising now enters post production! Expect viral material to begin surfacing later this summer.

As always, keep it locked to PacificRim2-Movie.com for the latest news, updates and fan discussions. Directed by Steven DeKnight, Pacific Rim: Uprising will deploy February 23rd, next year!

Here's hoping it's at least as good as the first. Wish del Toro was still doing it, but glad it's still coming.
