‘Emerald City’s’ Adria Arjona Dives Into ‘Pacific Rim: Maelstrom’


Puerto Rican stunner Adria Arjona is joining Steven S. DeKnight’s sequel to Guillermo del Toro’s 2013 mecha-inspired robot vs. sea monsters epic Pacific Rim. Slated for release Feb. 23, 2018, Pacific Rim: Maelstrom follows a new group of Kaiju-fighting Jaeger pilots, led by the son of fallen hero Stacker Pentecost (Idris Elba).

Arojana co-stars alongside Jing Tian (Kong: Skull Island), Scott Eastwood (Suicide Squad), tween pop singer Cailee Spaeny, and topliner  John Boyega (Star Wars: The Force Awakens), who plays Pentecost’s son. No word on her character’s role in the film, which begins production next month in Australia.

Arojana first caught buzz playing sexy girlfriend to Taylor Kitsch’s troubled cop on HBO’s rightfully maligned season two of “True Detective.” She’ll next play Dorthy on NBC’s Wizard of OZ TV adaptation, “Emerald City,” but horror fans can skip that noise and catch her in The Belko Experiment, a new frightener from director Greg McLean (Wolf Creek) and writer James Gunn (Guardians of the Galaxy).
