Even though director Guillermo del Toro and writer Travis Beacham are developing a sequel to Pacific Rim, it doesn't mean it's set in stone yet. The studio has yet to green light it; if that's something they even decide to do. I think the movie will end up making around $300 million when all is said and done, so hopefully it happens.
Pacific Rim was one of the funnest movies of the summer. I want to see that sequel get made, especially now that we've learned it will include a Jaeger and Kaiju hybrid! I have to say that I'm having a fun time trying to imagine what that will look like.
This bit of information came straight from Del Toro who had this to say in an interview with MTV,
"I’ll tell you a couple of things. We will have Gipsy 2.0 for sure. Second thing is you’re gonna see a merging of Kaiju and Jaeger. And that is quite special."
Del Toro went on to explain how that is possible:
"Just think about it for a second. We sent Gipsy to the other side, right? It exploded, but whatever remains stays there. We’ve drifted with a Kaiju brain. Well, then start riffing on that and you’ll get to something."
This is such a cool concept! Hopefully they get to make it a reality!
