I never saw the original Pacific Rim, but it did really well at the box office, and Universal Pictures ordered a sequel not long after its release. Now, nearly three years later, that sequel is stalled in the water and seems like it may not be happening at all. Universal says it will, eventually, but there are no real plans to move forward with it. If Pacific Rim 2 does eventually come to pass, however, director Guillermo del Toro has one person in mind for a starring role: Game of Thrones actress Maisie Williams.
The pair recently met up for lunch for some reason or other, and Guillermo was so taken by Maisie that he would love to give her her very own Jaeger in the second movie:
Had lunch with Maisie Williams yesterday. Remarkable. Dammit- if PR2 happens, that girl is getting a Jaeger.

What do you think? Should Maisie Williams be in the Pacific Rim sequel? Should the Pacific Rim sequel even get made?

Pacific Rim is a complete dud of a film, it’s honestly so boring. Half of it is just big CGI sequences of robots fighting sea monsters. The plot is almost non-existant, and the characters are stereotypes. I can see why they’d struggle to come up with a second part, you need at least a resemblance of a plot to kick it into gear.
