The director told EW:
But at least one person thinks the Pacific Rim sequel is still happening. â€œWe are still turning in a screenplay and a budget in three weeks,â€ writer-director Guillermo Del Toro tells EW. â€œAs far as Iâ€™m concerned, itâ€™s not gone. Weâ€™re still on it.â€
Del Toro says the filmâ€™s delay is only temporary. â€œIt moved further,â€ he says. â€œI may do another movie in the middle.â€
Del Toro is no stranger to long-delayed passion-project blockbusters. â€œI can tell you this, if I was a billionaire, I would definitely do Hellboy 3, Pacific Rim 2, and At the Mountains of Madness.â€ He laughs. â€œAnd I would quickly become a millionaire.â€
This is why Guillermo Del Toro is awesome. He won’t let the Jeagers stay down, so we may still get some more hot robot-on-monster action from him again in the future!
