Guillermo del Toro reiterates that he and Travis Beacham are working on the Pacific Rim 2script, though the director admits green lighting the film comes from “above my pay rate.”
Guillermo Del Toro’s monsters-versus-robots epic Pacific Rim debuted huge this week in China, greatly improving sequel prospects for a film that under-performed in the domestic market.
“We want to take however long it takes to really find out the idea and try to bridge something that really makes the mythology roll,” Guillermo del Toro says of the planned sequel to Pacific Rim.
Legendary Pictures has hired Travis Beacham, who wrote the original treatment for Pacific Rim, to collaborate with Guillermo del Toro on the script for the sequel. The film opens July 12.
