The apocalypse is back on. Director of the 2013 sci-fi thriller Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro, has confirmed via Twitter that Pacific Rim 2 is in the works.
Check out this clip below from the original Pacific Rim.
In the first Pacific Rim, giant monsters called the Kaiju started attacking Earth, sparking a massive war that would threaten all mankind. Humans invented enormous robots called Jaegers to try and combat the Kaiju, and ultimately the fate of the universe fell in the hands of two unlikely heroes: Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi).
It hasn't been confirmed yet, but it's likely that Hunnam and Kikuchi will return for Pacific Rim 2. And del Toro has mentioned that maybe Maisie Williams (Game Of Thrones) might join the cast! Let's hope she does — Arya Stark could kick the Kaiju's asses. Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil and Spartacus) will be directing.
