SDCC 2016 – Charlie Hunnam Won’t Return for Pacific Rim 2
SDCC 2016 News! King Arthur star Charlie Hunnam has confirmed that he would no longer return for the Pacific Rim 2.
During his interview with Yahoo Movies, Hunnam stated:
“There was one incarnation of this sequel that involved me heavily, but I was unavailable. They have a very definite schedule that they have to film. Because of the, you know, politics and business surrounding filmmaking, sometimes non-creative decisions will dictate how something unfolds, which seems bass-ackwards in the fact that we’re making art. Or at least aspiring to make art“
But, yeah, it unfortunately ended up being something we couldn’t remedy, because by the time they got their schedule fully realized, then I wasn’t available,” he continued. “But I think they’re on to something very exciting.
