It has been a while since we last got updates about the state of the Pacific Rim sequel. However, according to Variety, Cailee Spaeny has been cast as the female lead in Pacific Rim: Malestrom. No further information about her role has been revealed.
Cailee Spaeny is a relative newcomer to acting. She is known as an Australian singer as well. This will be her first big budget Hollywood production, so her name recognition will get a huge boost from Pacific Rim 2.
Pacific Rim 2 will take place after the events of the first film, with Star Wars' John Boyega starring as Stacker Pentecost's son. Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi's return are yet to be announced. Plot-wise, it was mentioned early on that the sequel would explore more of the Kaiju's origins and of course, introduce us to new Jaegers and technology.
