Pacific Rim 2 in the Works

In a recent interview with IGN, Guillermo del Toro discussed plans for a second Pacific Rim movie. Although it didn’t break any records, it did make $407 Million internationally and made its budget of $190 Million back.

“We are writing the sequel,” said del Toro to IGN. “Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active. The decision to greenlight or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate.”

Sure, too much was shot at night and the Scientist guys were annoying but aside from that, Pacific Rim was a blast and these are flaws they could easily fix for a sequel. I would be up for Part 2, but the fact it made less than $500 Mil worldwide makes me doubt the studio would give it a green-light.

The target audience after all is rather limited and if people didn’t rush to see the first movie, then they aren’t about to pay for the sequel.

What do you guys think? Would you watch a Pacific Rim sequel?
