Idris Elba recently announced that he was up for a major role in one of the biggest movies heading into production at this time. Many thought he was auditioning for a part in Quentin Tarantino's Django Unchained.

Today, it has been revealed that the actor is actually up for a lead role in Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim.

Charlie Hunnam has already been cast in this sci-fi thriller, which finds giant monsters from space bombarding earth. To save mankind from extinction, a group of soldiers must battle this invading threat by manning large robots.

It isn't known which character Idris Elba will be playing in Pacific Rim. The actor is currently filming Ridley Scott's Alien spin-off Prometheus.

Hopefully this film will be a success, prompting the studio to greenlight At the Mountains of Madness.

Was he? IIRC, his tweet made people think he was talking about Django Unchained, but it was actually Pacific Rim.

Stars like Charlie Hunnam (Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor), and Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) are headlining Pacific Rim, which is a futuristic tale about the war between humanity and “25 foot tall monsters” that enter our world through a portal, located in the Pacific Ocean. The supporting cast also includes notable stars like Rinko Kikuchi, Willem Dafoe, and Robert Kazinsky, among others.
