In a recent interview, Guillermo Del Toro revealed that he is writing a sequel to Pacific Rim, which underperformed in the US but did incredibly well overseas for a worldwide gross of $407 million, double its $190 million budget.
Del Toro stated, “We are writing the sequel. Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active. The decision to green light or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate.”
We will keep you posted as more news on the project surfaces.
