More Kaiju, more Jaeger and more action. Guillermo del Toro makes the announcement of a Pacific Rim 2 along with the animated series. He’ll be teaming up with screenwriter Zak Penn.
The idea of Pacific Rim 2 is an interesting one. The giant mech vs monster movie always had a cult following but some were underwhelmed and there was no box office smash. However, the talk about the chance of a sequel has never really died down. Hopefully the film companies sense a franchise.
But what will the sequel hold? As it happens, Del Toro gave BuzzFeed a interview. He said;
“The characters I love will return,”
“Raleigh, Mako, Newt, Gottlieb and who knows, maybe even Hannibal Chau – but we are taking them into a fresh territory that will display amazing sights and battles. The first film set the stage and now we’re ready to have a blast.”
