Guillermo del Toro Says All Hope Isn’t Lost for ‘Pacific Rim 2’

The reports of the demise of Pacific Rim 2 are not true, according to director Guillermo del Toro.

In an interview with EW, the filmmaker talked about the reports of the film being put on “indefinite hold”:

We are still turning in a screenplay and a budget in three weeks. As far as I’m concerned, it’s not gone. We’re still on it.

It moved further. I may do another movie in the middle.

So either GdT didn’t get the memo from Universal that said Pacific Rim 2 was being put on a permanent hiatus or he is living in denial.

It’s not like he doesn’t have other projects to keep him busy. He reportedly has a Wall-E / Splash hybrid film in the works and a movie revolving around Disney’s Haunted Mansion just to name a few. Pacific Rim 2 was a dream project for del Toro though. He even had plans for the sequel prior to the first film even hitting theaters.

I personally loved the first film. I’m hoping that Universal moves forward and we get a second installment. Only time will tell though, so as soon as we hear anything we’ll get the news right up here on Indierevolver!
