Sons of Anarchy star Charlie Hunnam scores the lead in Guillermo Del Toro’s Pacific Rim

The one thing that sticks out to me about Charlie Hunnam is that neither Judd Apatow nor any of his desciples have ever worked with Hunnam since ‘Undeclared’. Think about it, almost everyone in that show has appeared in an Apatow movie since then and even most of the stars from ‘Freaks and Geeks’ have made appearances in his films. But not Charlie Hunnam. I’m not sure what that means, but I thought I’d throw it out there for you to discuss. Anyway, Hunnam is doing just fine without Apatow, starring in the hit TV show ‘Sons of Anarchy’ and now taking the lead role in Guillermo Del Toro’s PACIFIC RIM.
In the film, Hunnam will the leader of a group of humans that band together to battle giant robots that are destroying the earth one city at a time. I guess if you’re familiar with Del Toro, you shouldn’t have expected a simple plot. We don’t know when filming will start, but this should be Del Toro’s next project after AT THE MOUNTAIN OF MADNESS was scrapped.
