Guillermo del Toro’s PG monster movie Pacific Rim has landed Charlie Hunnam for its lead.

The British Sons Of Anarchy actor has signed on to the project, with speculation that he’ll play the pilot of a mecha (a robotic construct) who needs to get back in the saddle.

Del Toro decided to helm Pacific Rim when Universal pulled the plug on his adaptation of At The Mountains Of Madness .

Though details on Rim are shady, we know it’s envisioned as a PG-rated monster movie that will take place in two different worlds, possibly with aliens invading Earth.

Hunnam can next be seen as a man in peril in The Ledge .
