'Pacific Rim: Uprising' Update: John Boyega Announces End Of Filming His Scenes On The Sequel
"Pacific Rim: Uprising" is well into the post-production with director Steven S. DeKnight. In addition to DeKnight substituting Guillermo del Toro in the director's chair, much of the cast is new to the series. "Pacific Rim" cast member returnee Charlie Day, praised the work of DeKnight and the new cast, "Star Wars: The Force Awakens" star John Boyega.
Taking on a new role in "Pacific Rim: Uprising," Boyega, will play as Jake Pentecost, the son of Idris Elba's "Pacific Rim" character, Stacker Pentecost. Boyega treasured a surprise 25th birthday celebration with the rest of the cast, which also consists of newcomers like Scott Eastwood and Adria Arjona. Now, Boyega can put his "Pacific Rim" experience to the test.
He tweeted a photo of himself on Tuesday to confirm that he's done filming his scenes for the film. "It's been an amazing six months! That's a wrap on #PacificRimUprising," his tweet reads. Boyega may be a little off, as he posted to his Instagram account that he had started his first day of filming on Nov. 9, 2016, making its total time on set less than four months.
No other description as of now about Boyega's character, beyond the fact that he portrays the son of Stacker Pentecost and becoming another Jaeger pilot. Another set of photos posted by Boyega shows the actor wearing his Jaeger suit, as seen also in "Pacific Rim: Uprising" concept art.
Does His Experience Collide With His Role In "Pacific Rim: Uprising?"
Based on Boyega's star-in-the-making turn as Finn, his character in "The Force Awakens", he has a chance to be "Pacific Rim: Uprising's" most convincing role. He showed the kind of charm and wit, which most likely will last in the eighth Star Wars part, "The Last Jedi." His new role in the "Pacific Rim" franchise has a good chance for stability to follow-up "Star Wars" sequel.
