Guillermo del Toro must have real talent for getting a sequel green lighted. He managed to give everyone a Hellboy 2 even when the original studio said no. But he’s decided to team up with Zak Penn who helped pen the story for The Avengers, so it’s safe to say he’s got some help on board. That’s right, Pacific Rim 2 is incoming.
Del Toro has always been dedicated to a sequel despite a slightly disappointing US box office performance but performed well on the international stage. Penn has a rich and borderline mixed back list of works, ranging from X-men 2 to Elektra.
The sequel, Pacific Rim 2, is planned for a April 7 2017 release. The story hasn’t been discussed about but there are whispers of a possible crossover with Godzilla.
