‘Wolf Creek’ star Dustin Clare joins newly re-titled ‘Pacific Rim: Uprising’
Aussie actor Dustin Clare has joined the newly retitled Pacific Rim: Uprising (previously Pacific Rim: Maelstrom) alongside John Boyega and Scott Eastwood.
Steven S. DeKnight is directing the project, with Thomas Tull, Mary Parent, Jon Jashni, and Guillermo del Toro (the director of the original) producing alongside Boyega and Femi Oguns.
Cale Boyter is exec producing the Universal/Legendary pic, which will bow in theaters February 23 next year.
Clare appeared in Stan's recent Wolf Creek series. His other credits include All Saints, McLeod's Daughters, Underbelly, The Eye of the Storm and Goddess.
The actor is probably best known internationally for starring roles in Spartacus: Gods of the Arena and Spartacus: War of the Damned. Starz's Spartacus franchise has form with Australians, with the late Andy Whitfield and Suicide Squad's Jai Courtney starring in the first season.
Clare moved into writing and producing with 2014 indie feature Sunday, the first project from his own production company, Fighting Chance Films. The shingle distributed documentary Life Off Grid last year.
Clare is represented by Independent Management Company in Australia and UTA and Silverlining Management in the USA.
