Ready for more giant monster on giant robot action? It’s coming!
In an interview with Collider recently, Mexican director and monster enthusiast Guillermo del Toro talked about his plans for Pacific Rim 2, the follow up to his hit movie. When asked about his plans for the sequel, GDT had this to say:”It’s a few years after the first one. It’s not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after – what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It’s quite a jump.”
“I think that two of our main characters, like in the first one, are Burn and Charlie. They are really, really – I mean, honestly, they are probably the guys I have the most fun writing, along with Hannibal Chau, so just from a purely selfish drive, I like writing them. I love writing for Charlie and Burn. I mean, [Burn’s] in Crimson Peak for that reason, because I love working with him. You’re gonna get a lot of that, but the Kaijus are very different and you’re gonna see a very different type of robots, I think. It’s gonna be quite a different adventure.”
Sounds interesting. It’s worth noting that del Toro also has Justice League Dark and a Mountains of Madness movie in the pipeline as well, so it could be awhile before we see actually see this. Sound good to you? Excited? Wanna see Doug Jones in a kaiju suit? Comments below!
