Ron Perlman Joins Guillermo Del Toro's Pacific Rim

Director Guillermo del Toro (Pan's Labryinth) confirmed to Wired that Ron Perlman (Drive, Enemy At The Gates) has been added to the cast of his giant monster/robot mash-up Pacific Rim. Perlman has previously worked with Guillermo on Hellboy 1-2, Blade 2, Cronos, and was going to have a role in the canceled At The Mountains of Madness. The film stars Ron's Sons of Anarchy co-star Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba (Luther, Thor, Wire, Prometheus) and Charlie Day (Horrible Bosses). The epic monster sci-fi flick will be released on May 10th 2013.

"We are working with actors that I absolutely adore," he continues. "Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman. It's really, it's a very, very beautiful poem to giant monsters. Giant monsters versus giant robots. Twenty-five-story-high robots beating the crap out of 25-story-high monsters. We're trying to create a world in which the characters are real and how it would affect our world politically, how it would affect the landscape if creatures like this really came out of the sea, etc."
