Max Martini joins PACIFIC RIM cast
Max Martini has joined the cast of Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim. Travis Beacham wrote the screenplay that is said to be a variation on the Japanese Kaiju genre (giant monsters) and the plot sees "a future Earth defending itself from attacking creatures through the use of enormous mechanized robots." Variety reports that he will play "a resistance fighter who goes up against the invading creatures."
Martini has starred in Saving Private Ryan, Contact and Redbelt. The cast also includes Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Rinko Kikuchi. Pacific Rim is aiming for a July 12, 2013 release.
