Pacific Rim Sequel Script Being Written

Guillermo Del Toro has revealed that he is currently writing a script for a sequel to Pacific Rim.

The Jaegar vs Kaiju blockbuster took a respectable $400 million worldwide, and while a follow-up has not yet been greenlit by Warner Bros. and Legendary, the director is already hard at work.


He told IGN;


“We are writing the sequel. Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active. The decision to green light or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate.”

The first film’s North American taking was a hugely disappointing $100 million, but it’s huge worldwide appeal – especially in China, where it actually outperformed The Avengers – may well be enough to get it a sequel.
