Charlie Day Discusses A Sequel To “Pacific Rim”

August 5, 2013

Speaking with Crave Online, actor Charlie Day (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia) touches on what could happen in a potential Pacific Rim sequel.

“I remember when I first met with him (Del Toro) that he liked the idea of Newt becoming a bit of a villain in the second film. But, I think over the course of making the film, and the way the character resonated with the audience, I don’t think he would want to turn him into a villain now, but I really have no idea… Guillermo is one of these guys that his mind is so active that he might have an idea about something and then it’s a completely different idea five minutes later. I’m hopeful that we get to drive a big punching robot. I think traditionally in those comics, sometimes the science guys put together a cheap, dorky version of one of the robots so maybe we’ll get to do something like that.”

It is unclear whether we’ll get a sequel to Pacific Rim. The movie underperformed at the box off in the states. The movie lost to Grown Ups 2, which is a damn shame that a fart joke movie beat a picture directed by Guillermo del Toro. The movie is, however, making a decent amount overseas in China. Time will tell if the producers will commit to a sequel.
