Variety says you can add “The Unit’s” Max Martini to the growing cast of Guillermo del Toro’s “Pacific Rim”, a film that isn’t scheduled to hit until 2013, but apparently that hasn’t stopped Legendary Pictures and del Toro from already making huge promises about what they have in store. Hey, I’m hoping it all works out, because I’ve been dying to get my eyeballs on another mecha fighting movie ever since the genius that is “Robot Jox”. Yes, you heard me. “Robot Jox”. Now just add monsters. That appears to be the premise being “Pacific Rim”.
In the film, Martini will play another monster fighter for del Toro. I suspect that will involve Martini running around with a BFG shooting things. He should be good at that, since he’s spent what, five years doing just that on “The Unit”.
Martini joins Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, and Rinko Kikuchi on the sci-fi epic.
