New Delhi: Pacific Rim Uprising, a sequel to the 2013 film Pacific Rim, is set to release in India on March 23.
“Pacific Rim Uprising”, to be brought to the country by Universal Pictures India, will hit the screens in four languages and multiple formats – English in 2D, 3D, 4DX & IMAX 3D format, and in 2D and 3D format in Hindi, Tamil and Telugu, read a statement.
The film, starring John Boyega and Scott Eastwood, is directed by Steven S. DeKnight.
DeKnight said: “I was thrilled when I found out that John was interested. I met with him, and we were both very excited about the possibilities of what we could do with the franchise. He is a classic hero, but can play the hero and the anti-hero at the same time.”
“Jake Pentecost (Boyega’s character) starts out as a thief and ends up saving the world. John has all the qualities you would want for that type of role; he is charming, smart and funny. He brings a real Harrison Ford as Indiana Jones quality to the character.”
