"Pacific Rim" Sequel Script Ordered

By Garth Franklin Tuesday December 4th 2012 11:51PM

Legendary Pictures is already moving forward on a sequel to Guillermo del Toro's upcoming sci-fi giant monsters vs. giant robots movie "Pacific Rim".

The story of the first film follows a defense force consisting of mechas, giant robots and their human pilots, who are fighting to save humanity from gigantic monsters invading from an other-worldly dimension.

Travis Beacham penned the initial spec script for 'Rim' which Legendary scored back in 2010. Del Toro quickly became involved in its development after the collapse of his "At the Mountains of Madness" adaptation.

Del Toro will also supervise the writing of the sequel script, although at this stage it’s unclear whether he will direct. Warners will distribute.
