Talk about getting ahead of itself. Though the incredible looking Pacific Rim is still many months away from release, a sequel is already well in the works. Read on for the latest on this "who could have seen this one coming already?" event!

THR reports Legendary Pictures is already laying the groundwork for a sequel, tapping Travis Beacham to pen the script. Beacham wrote the initial treatment for Pacific Rim, as a spec script, which Legendary picked up in June 2010. Del Toro quickly became involved in its development, and when his passion project At the Mountains of Madness fell through, he made it his next picture. Warner Bros. will distribute.

Look for Pacific Rim in theatres July 12th of 2013. Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff star.

Travis Beacham's script is set in 2025, the 12th year »
