After defeating Kijus and Somali Pirates, “Pacific Rim” and “Captain Phillips” actor Max Martini is again gearing up for battle.

Martini is in talks to co-star with James Badge Dale in Legendary’s “Spectral.”

Nic Mathieu will direct with Universal distributing the project.

Described as a supernatural “Black Hawk Down,” “Spectral” was recently rewritten by scribe John Gatins and George Nolfi. Ian Fried wrote the original script.

Jillian Share and Sophie Sikora are overseeing the movie for Legendary, which Universal will distribute.

Martini recently wrapped production on Universal’s “Fifty Shades of Grey” as Christian Grey’s bodyguard. He is repped by ICM Partners.

    Reblogged this on To say the least… and commented:
    Wow. What a heartbreaking reality. No means no..you’d think that the most basic word in every language is the most heard..but it isn’t. No one asks to be dehumanized-women and men, children and yes even animals if you can believe it.

    ***To the guys out there-a woman doesn’t ask to be violated even if she does dress “provocatively”. No one asks for “barbaric” treatment.

    NO means NO.
