The Kaiju are back and they are back for their revenge against the towering Robots that punched them down in the first Pacific Rim.
Guillermo Del Toro spoke with Yahoo Movies about the upcoming sequel to the blockbuster Giant Monster vs Giant Robot movie.
The new movie will take place a few years after the first one ended and will reportedly focus more on the kaiju and their origins.
“We are three years away, so to spoil anything would be fantastically silly of me,” Del Toro said. What I can tell you is screenwriter Zak Penn and I really went in, we started with screenwriter Travis Beacham about a year and a half ago, kicking ideas back and forth. And, admittedly, I said to Zak, let’s keep kicking ideas till we find one that really, really turns the first movie on its ear, so to speak.”
There is very little but rumours surrounding the production and cast at present but the movie’s release date is scheduled for release in August of 2017.
