Guillermo Del Toro Clarifies Pacific Rim Sequel’s Status


Most of Guillermo Del Toro’s projects tend to encounter problems beyond the first or second movie, despite garnering praise from fans and critics alike (and in most cases despite more than breaking even at the box office.) So it’s reassuring that the director himself confirmed that the sequel to the mecha/kaiju love letter Pacific Rim, tentatively titled Pacific Rim: Maelstrom, is still happening.

However, he mentioned during an interview with Entertainment Weekly that there will be a delay, so it’s not all good news. Del Toro also stated that he may do another movie in the middle, so it’s got to be a protracted delay.

The director was lighthearted about it, though. And he was not above admitting that the main problem is funding:

“I can tell you this, if I was a billionaire, I would definitely do Hellboy 3, Pacific Rim 2, and At the Mountains of Madness.” Del Toro told EW. “And I would quickly become a millionaire.”
