With one of the biggest blockbusters ever under his belt, actor John Boyega isn’t slowing down and has landed the lead role for the sequel to the 2013 fantasy/action film Pacific Rim. The Star Wars: The Force Awakens star is set to play the son of Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecost in the upcoming film, and has also signed on as a producer under his newly established Upper Room Productions company. The film will be directed by Steven S. DeKnight and is scheduled to being filming later this year.
