Pacific Rim sequel already in the pipeline

Screenwriter commissioned to begin work on a script

Pacific Rim might not be in cinemas for a little while to come, but Legendary Pictures has already given a potential sequel the green light.

The news comes hot on the heels of the revelation that Guillermo Del Toro’s next film after Pacific Rim will be a “throwback” ghost story called Crimson Peak.

According to Del Toro, he’s already started considering what he might do with a potential sequel, but has reiterated that he’d want to do something different in between, should he return to direct.

“We certainly started tossing ideas for possibilities of a sequel and Travis Beacham and I are writing a proposal of ideas,” said Del Toro, “but at the same time I know I don’t want to do that next. I want to do something else, I want to do something in a different genre that’s not so big.”

Co-starring Idris Elba, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman, Pacific Rim will open in the UK on 12 July 2013.

      I like Del Toro and his films, and this is a good news, but... What about HELLBOY 3?? I believe that story needs proper ending, to make it a trilogy, while Ron Perlman is stil fit enough. He's not getting younger and personally I can't see anny other actor in that role.

      I think Hellboy 3 may well be one of those much desired films that never appears. A real shame, as TheGunslinger says, because I would love to see a proper conclusion.

      I'm not convinced Pacific Rim is going to be the hit that producers and Del Toro are expecting so a sequel so early seems quite the gamble but then I could be wrong. Time will tell.
