Nigeria born Star Wars: The Force Awakens star, John Boyega has just landed a lead role for the sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 Robots vs. Monsters film, Pacific Rim 2, Deadline reports.

Boyega will play the son of Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba) and will most likely get to pilot a ‘mech’ to battle the Kaijus.

Awarding winning screenwriter, producer and director, Steven S. DeKnight is directing the sequel, which is expected to begin production at the end of the year.

With Daredevil’s head writer directing the film, Jurassic World 2 writer penning it, and John Boyega starring, it undoubtedly will be a movie to look out for.
