Guillermo Del Toro Claims Pacific Rim 2 Isn't Dead
And so the emotional roller coaster that is Pacific Rim continues. First, Pacific Rim 2 was greenlit, then it was "indefinitely postponed" (we all know what that means), then it was seemingly dead, even removed from Universal's schedule. Last we heard, Del Toro was handing in a new budget and script, which seemed somewhat promising, but we haven't heard anything since. Now, the director is continuing to insist that the rumors aren't true, and that the project is definitely not dead (but maybe not completely alive either).


Pacific Rim was a passion project for Del Toro and became an unexpected cult hit, so it's a relief to see that his passion for the sequel isn't wavering. It may be a long time before we see a Pacific Rim sequel, but we can keep hope alive that it will happen someday. And if it does, we will have an amazing star performance to look forward to:
