At long last, Toronto has scored another new Production! Director Guillermo del Toro who in 2007 was nominated for an Oscar with Pan's Labrynth, will be filming his new Sci-Fi/Action flick Pacific Rim (Working Title: Still Seas) in the City beginning Halloween through April 2012.
Pacific Rim will see Humans boarding giant Robots to fight-off gargantuan Monsters and confirmed so far are Idris Elba, star of 2009's campy Obsessed and also Horrible Bosses star Charlie Day, who for a change will be taking on a more serious role. British Actor Charlie Hunnam also will be starring and is known best for his work on Sons of Anarchy.
Although Tom Cruise originally was considered for Elba's role, alas that fell-through. Will be exciting to see the Cast list expand in the near future. Perhaps newly-upgraded Pinewood Studios will play host to filming?
