Guillermo Del Toro Pacific Rim SequelPacific Rim is one movie that everyone is eagerly waiting for. In fact, it’s possibly the most eagerly awaited film of this year. But, even before the film has hit the screens, Guillermo Del Toro is talking about a sequel. “Travis [Beacham, co-writer] and I have been working on it. We co-wrote the screenplay on this first one, and now we’re hard at work at doing the second one” Del Toro was quoted as saying, revealing that a sequel is in the works.

He reveals further “We want to take however long it takes to really find out the idea and try to bridge something that really makes the mythology roll. And in the meantime, I’m going to shoot ‘Crimson Peak’, which is a ghost story. The great thing about Legendary is they’re willing to take it to completion in the right way. They’re giving us the leeway. Imagine that we’re generating the comic book. We’re learning more about the [Pacific Rim] world we’re creating day by day” he further added. Seems like, Del Toro really loves to keep his hands full.

As far as Crimson Perk is concerned he revealed “It’s the turn of the century. So it’s the turn of the century and half of the movie takes place in America, and the other half takes place in a Guillermo Del Toro Pacific Rimcrumbling mansion in Cumbria. And basically it’s a ghost story and Gothic romance, trying to subvert the rules of the usual Gothing romance”.

He then explains what the movie is all about by saying: “It’s very much… the first half is a love story, then that love story turns darker. And it’s at the same time a ghost story. I’m working at this moment with Lucinda Clarkson who is a really great playwright from the U.K. She has the proper degree of perversity and intelligence to turn it into something interesting to watch. It’s sort of a very compelling version of the classic Gothic romance, where you have the spookiness and the windswept landscape that dooms the characters, you know?” As far as Pacific Rim is concerned, it’s slated to release in the US on July 16 this year.
