Many casting details of the Pacific Rim sequel were revealed from time to time. But the only question that was haunting the fans from the beginning was that, who is going to play the female lead in the movie? Well, the makers have finally found their female lead.

Pacific Rim (2013) directed by the highly talented actor Guillermo del Toro was a blockbuster hit and has won the heart of critics and normal viewers.

As of now, the sequel is titled as Pacific Rim: Maelstrom and was announced earlier in the year 2014.
