According to The Hollywood Reporter, 28-year-old Chinese actress Jing Tian has joined the upcoming ‘Pacific Rim’ sequel.

“Chinese actress Jing Tian has joined the cast of Legendary’s Pacific Rim sequel,” they revealed. “The actress, who is making her English-language debut in Legendary’s fantasy The Great Wall opposite Matt Damon, will star in the mechs-versus-monsters tentpole alongside John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and Cailee Spaeny.”

It’s currently unclear what Jing Tian’s role will be in the upcoming mecha blockbuster, but it’s thought that she may have signed on as a Jaeger pilot after a similar appearance from the Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi in the first film.

There’s no information about the screenplay as yet… so we’ll have to wait and see.

Jing Tian is perhaps best known for her roles in Chinese films such as The Warring States, Special ID, and Police Story 2013. But she’s also due to appear in ‘The Great Wall’ as well as the upcoming King Kong flick, ‘Kong: Skull Island’.


‘Pacific Rim 2’ stars John Boyega, Scott Eastwood and Cailee Spaeny with Ron Perlman rumoured to reprise his role as Hannibal Chau.

Steven DeKnight will direct, based on the world created by Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beacham. Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni and del Toro will produce, along with John Boyega and Femi Oguns.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ heads to cinemas on 23 February 2018.
