Guillermo del Toro talks Pacific Rim future
"The direction we're going in is very different from the first," del Toro divulges. "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."
"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."
