‘Pacific Rim 2’ Starts Shooting This Fall, Godzilla Cross-Over No Such Thing Says Guillermo del Toro
Visionary director Guillermo del Toro will begin shooting the much-awaited sequel for “Pacific Rim”.
The 50-year-old Mexican director who is well-known for his fiction, fantasy and war films sat down recently with Yahoo! Movies and brought to light everything under the sun which concerned “Pacific Rim 2” from the so-called Godzilla crossover to the start of filming in November.
“We are deep into designing the robots – the Kaijus.,” del Torro revealed and added that they have enjoyed setting up the intricate details for the battle scenes.
The director who has been working closely with his associates for the upcoming 3D and IMAX-enhanced monster flick mentioned that they have labored for the past three to four months in designing.
Fans would have had really something to sink their teeth into, when a piece of writing insinuated that del Toro’s assumed homage to Japanese Kaiju films where moving up the ladder of the annals of kaiju lore.
According to Movie Pilot, Japan’s very own Godzilla will cross paths with the other inter-dimensional Kaijus in the next installment for “Pacific Rim”. It was also hinted that the upcoming movie will probe deeply into the mythos of the Kaijus and their origin story.
Del Toro’s quote was repeated and it took another meaning as it presented itself with the idea that Godzilla is part of the sequel. An article in Screen Crush managed to set things straight and uncovered that the director really had no plans of mashing-up the two rampaging monster canon.
‘Pacific Rim 2’ is set to be unleashed on August 4, 2017. The previous monster movie starred Charlie Hunnam (TV’s Sons of Anarchy), Idris Elba (Thor), Rinko Kikuchi (Babel) and Charlie Day (TV’s It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia).
