Guillermo del Toro keeps the hope alive, says Pacific Rim 2 isn't dead yet

01.11.2016

With last weeks news that Guillermo del Toro may be set to helm a remake of FANTASTIC VOYAGE came yet another update on the status of his PACIFIC RIM sequel, this time with THR saying that the sequel had been taken "off the table indefinitely." In what has become a bit of an ongoing tradition, Guillermo del Toro responded to the news that his anticipated sequel was dead in the water (again), by taking to Twitter to keep the hope for the PACIFIC RIM sequel alive.

Although I found watching PACIFIC RIM to be a great amount of fun, I won't be too broken up if the sequel never arrives. Guillermo del Toro is always very passionate about the projects he takes on (which makes it a genuine pleasure to listen to him chat about films) and it's nice to know that he'll be doing everything he can to get this sequel made, but he also has a tendency to collect potential films that never see the light of day, which doesn't exactly fill me with confidence regarding the sequels fate. If PACIFIC RIM 2 does end up happening, del Toro has said that he intends on giving Maisie Williams (Game of Thrones) a role in the film which will come her own Jaeger. Luuucky!

Are you glad that Guillermo del Toro is fighting for PACIFIC RIM 2 or do you wish he'd focus on other projects instead?

Guillermo del Toro's last film, CRIMSON PEAK, will be making its Blu-ray/DVD debut on February 9th, and you can pre-order your copy right here!

Read an article yesterday stating that a Chinese production company had bought Legendary, and it seems to be getting reported by reputable sources. By all accounts that seems like it might work in Pacific Rim 2's favour as it did better in Asia and Europe than the US.

I want more

lots more. People missed the point of this being over acted and cheesy, its a homage to the older kajius films of the 60s and all, and how do you make a movie with robots and giant monsters serious ? LOL.

a bit sad they are having a hard time getting this off the ground. i don't get why giant robots pounding giant monsters can't get enough love yet the universally hated transformers films get one stupid sequel after another.

I know he has great love for this super robot genre, but maybe he should let other directors take a shot at it? Pacific Rim's visuals were cool but some things are severely lacking in the storytelling department. Stoic characters are abound, but what of their motivations? When the world has gone to hell, what makes them think the world still needs saving? Why do we even care if they live or die? All we get is a vague notion that Raleigh just have nothing better to do than pilot a Jaeger and

All we get is a vague notion that Raleigh just have nothing better to do than pilot a Jaeger and Mako just wants to make her surrogate father proud, also maybe get into Raleigh's pants if they survive the apocalypse. Pretty lame intentions. I believe the first movie would have been miles better if only Del Toro took the time to build his characters properly first instead of focusing too much on the world building.
