Pacific Rim 2 will set up Pacific Rim 3

Pacific Rim had a happy ending. Or did it? With a sequel to the film in the works, we know that the kaiju are going to wreak havoc again, and it’s up to the pilots and their Jaegers to save the world…again. Director Guillermo del Toro is working with screenwriter Zak Penn (The Avengers, X-Men 2) on Pacific Rim 2, and in a recent interview with Collider, we now know that the second film will lead to the third film.

“The direction we’re going in is very different from the first,” del Toro said. “All I can say is some of your favorite characters come back, some others don’t because we have decided that we’re going to shoot ambitiously and say ‘Let’s hope we have three movies,’’ so some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp
up on the third one. I hope people like it but you’re gonna get a very different experience from the first one.”

Del Toro is really taking his time on the script.

“We got the first draft of the movie now, and we are going to spend another 4-5 months on the screenplay before we start pre-production,” del Toro confirmed. “We start pre-production next year in August-September and start shooting November-December next year.”

Pacific Rim 2 will be out in theaters on April 7, 2017.
