Former DAREDEVIL Showrunner Steven S. DeKnight Will Direct PACIFIC RIM 2

Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro has officially announced that he'll be taking a producer role on the sequel, and handing the reigns over to Steven S. DeKnight. More past the jump...

After a lot of back-and-forth it looks like plans for a sequel to the 2013 Jaeger Vs. Kaiju sci-fi action flick, Pacific Rim, are officially under way.

This marks DeKnight's first foray into feature directing, though he has worked on numerous TV projects as both as writer and director.
