At age 25, John Boyega is already a force to be reckoned with in Hollywood — not just as an actor, but now as a producer. Building on his success in his two Star Wars movies, The Force Awakens and The Last Jedi, Boyega decided to become a hyphenate in Pacific Rim: Uprising, both starring in and producing the film. Boyega told us there was a pretty steep learning curve in the new job, but he’s happy to be jumping into the business end of show business.
