Exciting news for fans of Guillermo del Toro and his forthcoming massive monster mash-up Pacific Rim, with word that production company Legendary Pictures are eager for more – even with 6 months before the first films’ release.
Legendary are sensing a strong film is currently in post-production and have tasked the original’s screenwriter Travis Beacham with writing a follow-up with del Toro supervising the script. No word yet if the Hellboy and Pans Labyrinth director will be at the helm again considering he has a number of other passionate projects on the horizon, but if the sci-fi epic is a hit, expect him to return in some capacity.
Last week, Pacific Rim’s website and viral campaign got underway bringing a number of mysterious videos featuring a glimpse at some of the giant Kaiju alien invaders as well as five blueprint designs for huge human-piloted robots serving as Earth best defence. »
