Guillermo Del Toro prepping Pacific Rim 3?!

October 18th, 2014 by Marc Comments

We’re still excited for the Pacific Rim sequel and TV series… so the idea of it being a movie trilogy is just great.

FTN favourite Guillermo del Toro has been telling Collider that his plan is to have the second movie end in such a way that it leaves the door wide open for the third move: “Some of your favourite 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,'” he says.

“So some characters come in at the end of the second, hoping that it will ramp up on the third one.”

He also confirmed that he hopes to begin filming on part two late next year. And we can’t wait…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
