Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim doesn't even come out until next summer, but Legendary Pictures is so confident in its success that they've hired Travis Beacham to write the script for it. He also wrote the initail story treatment for the first movie. Del Toro will also be working on the script with him, but there's no confirmation on if he'll be coming back to direct it or not. I guess there's going to be another big threat that the giant robots will have to face off against.

It seems like a lot of sequels start being developed before the first film is even released in theaters these days. This normally happens when a film is testing really well with audineces, and studios just want to be locked and loaded and ready to move on it if the first movie is a success. 

Hell, I haven't even seen Pacific Rim yet, »
