John Boyega, known most now for his portrayal of Finn in The Force Awakens, has been spotted in costume for the filming of Pacific Rim: Uprising.

The Pacific Rim sequel has been filming since November last year in Sydney, Australia, where the actor was spotted in what looks like his Jaeger pilot suit.

Aside from the addition of Boyega, Rinko Kikuchi and Charlie Day will be back as Mako and Newt in the sequel. Karl Urban apparently is involved too, but he denies involvement in the movie.

Boyega will be the lead of the new film, playing as Idris Elba’s Stacker Pentecosts’ son. Cailee Spaeny plays the female lead role, with Scott Eastwood, Jing Tian, Adria Arjona and Mackenyu also appearing in the film, among others.

After being in development hell for so long, this really is a welcome sight.
