Guillermo Del Toro Writing “Pacific Rim” Sequel

October 17, 2013

Although Pacific Rim didn’t meet box office expectations, director Guillermo del Toro has revealed to Empire Magazine that he and co-writer Travis Beachman are currently writing the sequel.

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.

The box office performance in the U.S. was weak, but the worldwide release has eased the pain. The motion picture did quite well in China and other territories.

While this is good news, pay attention to that comment about the green light. It seems the sequel still isn’t guaranteed.

So if you really want Pacific Rim 2, the fans need to show their support and pick up the Blu-ray/DVD or buy it on VOD. They’ll need every dollar to convince the studio to green light the sequel.
