John Boyega To Star In Pacific Rim 2

Star Wars’ John Boyega has signed on to star in Pacific Rim 2.

Boyega tweeted out the news.

“I’ll be taking on the Pacific Rim franchise with Steven S.Deknight directing. Very excited!” Boyega said in his tweet.

Deadline further reports Boyega will play the son of the character played by Idris Elba in the first film.

 “I am very proud and happy to welcome John into a fantastic sandbox,” Guillermo Del Toro said. “The Pacific Rim universe will be reinforced with him as a leading man as it continues to be a multicultural, multi-layered world. ‘The World saving the world’ was our goal and I couldn’t think of a better man for the job.”

Pacific Rim 2 starts filming at the end of the year.

No John Boyega For Black Panther

Contrary to internet rumor, John Boyega will not be appearing in the Black Panther movie.

Actually Boyega, known for the new Star Wars movies, teased Black Panther almost two years ago on Twitter.

“Marvel role? ….hehehe … I’m dam right aiming for it,” Boyega said. “Currently booking flight to wakanda.”

However, Boyega’s agent recently took to Twitter to shoot down any notion of John Boyega joining Chadwick Boseman, Lupita Nyong’o and Michael B. Jordan on Black Panther.

“My client [John Boyega] will not be starring in Black Panther. Now for the news,” Boyega’s agent tweeted — following Kevin Feige having followed him on Twitter.

John Boyega is currently filming Star Wars: Episode VIII.

Black Panther hits February 16, 2018 directed by Ryan Coogler.

John Boyega Says Star Wars: Episode VIII Is Darker & Bigger Than Force Awakens

Perhaps following in the footsteps of Empire Strikes Back, John Boyega says Star Wars: Episode VIII will be bigger and darker than its predessor.

Boyega appeared at the Cannes Film Festival where Variety caught up with the actor.

It’s very easy. Rian Johnson is great. It’s a different take, darker, bigger. Someone will say: “How do you get bigger than ‘Force Awakens?’” But it’s crazy.

Boyega wouldn’t say if his comments pertain to his character of Finn and jokingly responded with:

My skin color does because of the heat on the job! That’s me dodging your question because Disney has spies everywhere. If I answer this, I get killed, and I’m not in episode nine.

“Star Wars: Episode VIII” has a December 16, 2017 release directed by Rian Johnson starring Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, Adam Driver, Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, Oscar Isaac, Lupita Nyong’o, Domhnall Gleeson, Anthony Daniels, Gwendoline Christie, Andy Serkis, Benicio Del Toro, Laura Dern and Kelly Marie Tran.
