A recent interview with director Guiliermo Del Toro provided some new insight into his upcoming film Pacific Rim 2 the sequel to 2013’s fan favorite monster vs. mecha action spectacular.
Del Toro offers a few details about the story structure for this new film:
“It’s a few years after the first one. It’s not an immediate follow-up. It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after – what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat. It’s quite a jump.”
Furthermore, Guiliermo has apparently confirmed two returning actors for this project:
*Charlie Day as Dr. Newton
*Burn Gorman as Dr. Herman Gottlieb.
Will anyone else return from the original film? What new adventures await us on this side of the Breach? Only time will tell!
Pacific Rim 2 is expected to hit theaters in 2017. Stay tuned to TokuNation as we keep you up to date on all Kaiju and Jaeger news!
