PACIFIC RIM II on its way. I am on board only as producer, co-story but we all like/trust Steven S. DeKnight. Stay tuned for cast news.— Guillermo del Toro (@RealGDT) July 2, 2016
Crazy excited! Loved him in Attack the Block and he absolutely kills it in The Force Awakens. https://t.co/zohPSJeAI3— Steven DeKnight (@stevendeknight) July 2, 2016
