Guillermo del Toro's eagerly-awaited Pacific Rim is still months away from its July 12th theatrical premiere - we haven't even seen a proper trailer yet. Yet Legendary Pictures is already prepping a sequel.

Pacific Rim has been a top-secret project for years, but with the giant monsters vs. giant robots plot, it is no surprise that it is being positioned as a tentpole picture. But just because it is a cool concept with an amazing director at the helm doesn't mean that it will be a franchise-worthy property (although let's be honest: it has a far better chance than most.) Travis Beacham, who wrote the initial Pacific Rim treatment based on his own spec script, is working on the sequel, which del Toro will be co-scripting. It is too early to tell if del Toro will return to direct a sequel, as he has enough projects in the works to last several lifetimes. »
