Guillermo del Toro Announces “PACIFIC RIM 2”News Samuel Zimmerman
The acclaimed contemporary master of macabre fantasy, Guillermo del Toro, will continue his working relationship with Legendary Entertainment on a sequel to last summer’s big ol’ monsters vs. mechs brawl PACIFIC RIM.
Sending greetings from Toronto where the filmmaker is in post on his windswept, Gothic haunter CRIMSON PEAK, del Toro reveals 2017 is aimed to be a big year for big fans of big creatures battling it out. Not only will del Toro develop PACIFIC RIM 2 with the first film’s writer Travis Beacham, as well as Zak Penn, a planned animated series (which feels really perfect) is also in the cards.
See the brief clip, below. Here’s hoping for the resurrection of Cherno Alpha!
