Guillermo del Toro Not Giving Up on ‘Pacific Rim 2′

The “Pacific Rim 2″ roller coaster continues: After word last week from THR that the sequel had been taken “off the table indefinitely,” del Toro himself took to Twitter to let fans know the film is still in motion.

THR’s initial report centered on del Toro directing a “Fantastic Voyage” remake for 20th Century Fox, which is set to be his next project after “Crimson Peak.” Originally, that slot was to be filled by the “Pacific Rim” sequel.

Legendary Pictures’ “Pacific Rim” was released in summer 2013, and quickly gained a cult following among fans. The film — featuring human-controlled mechs called Jaegers taking on monstrous Kaijus — had only a modest showing in domestic theaters with a $101.8 million gross, but earned $309.2 million in foreign box office. That’s a total of $411 million off of a reported $190 million production budget (which doesn’t include additional significant costs like marketing), a margin that has made a sequel something of a rocky proposition from the start.

    He always drops projects, it’s super irritating. He was SUPPOSED to direct the Hobbit. He was SUPPOSED to direct Justice League Dark.
