Mary Parent has joined the producing line-up of Legendary Pictures’ Pacific Rim, the mechas vs. monsters movie being directed by Guillermo del Toro.

Parent acted as chairman of MGM until its acquisition by Spyglass and then formed her own shingle named Disruption Entertainment, signing a first-look deal at Paramount.

While she has several projects in the hopper, none are in production. Pac Rim, as the project is known, is a giant tentpole and welcomed her production expertise.

Parent now joins Legendary’s Thomas Tull  and  Jon Jashni, as well as del Toro, as producers.

The movie shoots in Toronto this fall and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Charlie Day among others.
