Newcomer Cailee Spaeny Lands A Lead Role In PACIFIC RIM Sequel

Legendary's Pacific Rim sequel continues to surprise with its casting choices, and they've just found their female lead in newcomer Cailee Spaeny. She joins the previously confirmed John Boyega & Scott Eastwood.

Variety is reporting that Legendary's upcoming sequel to their surprise 2013 sci-fi hit, Pacific Rim, has found its female lead in newcomer Cailee Spaeny. No further details on her role were provided.

She joins a cast headlined by John Boyega (Star Wars: Episode VIII), who is playing the son of Idris Elba's character, Stacker Pentecoat, from the first film. The sequel will also feature Scott Eastwood (Fast 8) in an undisclosed, but key role. Plot details are unsurprisingly nonexistant, but what we do know is that former Daredevil showrunner Steven S. DeKnight is helming the feature with Academy Award-nominee Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy) on-board as a producer.

Spaeny is relatively new on the acting scene and her only two major film credits are two 2016 indie releases, Counting to 1000 and The Shoes. She doesn't have any other projects lined up just yet, so she'll tackle Pacific Rim 2 next, which is set to kick off production this November in Australia, with some portions also expected to be filmed in China.
