Guillermo del Toro Talks More About Pacific Rim's Future
So Pacific Rim is poised and ready to become every fanboy's wet dream movie of the summer (we just cannot wait!), and director Guillermo del Toro had some interesting goodies to talk about in terms of the franchise's future.
"We’re been talking about the idea for [the sequel] and working on a pitch,” Del Toro tells Deadline. “And there will be a Mexican Jaeger! Having had two to three years pass from the first Pacific Rim to the second movie, we can also prepare a good video game, continue the graphic novel, and continue the mythology."
Legendary CEO Thomas Tull cautioned about getting too premature about sequel talk before the movie comes out. “We’d like to do it, but it’s up to the audience — ultimately we’ll have to see how it does,” Tull said.
Look for Pacific Rim, directed by Guillermo del Toro, in theatres July 12th of 2013. Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Ron Perlman, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., and Diego Klattenhoff star.

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure Pacific Rim.
When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes--a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)--who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.
