Pacific Rim 2 Is A Go!

By Dr. Know on June 27th, 2014

Well, it’s official: Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2 is a go at Universal, Legendary Pictures’ new producing partner. Moreover, del Toro will continue to develop the comic book series in addition to a new animated series.

Del Toro also recently revealed that the script will bring back Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), the male and female leads from the first film. The story, not surprisingly, will also follow the events of the first movie instead of the rumoured prequel.

“Some people were wondering if we were going to do the prequel. I was never interested in doing that first wave of invasion,” del Toro said to Buzzfeed earlier this month. “I’m going for very new, very crazy ideas on the second one, which are very different from the first one — but you will get really great spectacle.”
