Eastwood is wanted for Pacific Rim 2. No, not that Eastwood – not that we wouldn’t want to see The Man With No Name out draw a Kaiju – Scott Eastwood, who’s been tipped to join Star Wars: The Force Awakens John Boyega in the smashy  smashy robo-fun. 

Long kept alive by Guillermo del Toro, who will be Producing this one, the sequel, which also went by the name Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, has a new director in the form of Daredevil’s Steven S. DeKnight although nothing much has been revealed about the film's plot, aside from the fact that we can expect more monster-bashing and perhaps a deeper exploration of the creatures' realm. 

The year 2018 is currently the hot topic in Hollywood, with several studios scrambling to fill out its months with their wares. Last week, we got confirmation that Wreck-it Ralph 2 would press start to continue in March and now Pacific Rim 2 will stomp its way into cinemas in February. 

Eastwood, meanwhile, has been on something of a big film run at the moment. He'll next be seen in Suicide Squad (out August 5) and is part of the sprawling ensemble for Fast 8, which lands on April 14 next year.
