An earlier report made mention that Pacific Rim 2 has been put on indefinite hiatus, thought to be due to a squabble between Legendary Entertainment and Universal Studios.
Now that news is being contradicted by Guillermo del Toro.
EW.com caught up with the director to get the scoop with Guillermo del Toro stating as far as he is concerned, Pacific Rim 2 is still happening.
“We are still turning in a screenplay and a budget in three weeks,” Guillermo Del Toro said. “As far as I’m concerned, it’s not gone. We’re still on it.”
Del Toro did confirm Pacific Rim 2 has been delayed.
“It moved further,” he said. “I may do another movie in the middle.”
Del Toro did pass on WB’s Justice League Dark movie for Pacific Rim 2, but now with word of PR2 being delayed, we can hope Guillermo Del Toro will now do JLD.
Pacific Rim 2 was originally due out some time in 2017.
