Steven S. DeKnight to Direct 'Pacific Rim 2'

Will his direction style be as compatible rift-wise with original movie director Guillermo del Toro, who will now be the films' producer?

Season 1 Daredevil showrunner, Steven S. DeKnight, will now step into a new arena of kaiju vs. mechas with Pacific Rim 2: Maelstrom. As for the original film's director, Guillermo del Toro, he'll be producing this outing (which doesn't come as much a surprise as suddenly his schedule became full). 

The sudden news ironically came from The Hollywood Reporter, the same place which just a few months ago pronounced the sequel dead. It just goes to show you the real person one must trust is del Toro who'll get this film made no matter what.

No official word though of the sequel's new release date, but the choice of DeKnight is an interesting one. It'll be the first movie he has directed (he's directed numerous episodes for TV series such as Daredevil, Dollhouse, Angel, and Smallville), but he's no stranger to crazy brutal fights (DeKnight created the Spartacus TV series on Starz), so he should feel right at home.
