Pacific Rim Sequel Delays Shooting?

A new rumor over at Latino Review suggests that the upcoming “Pacific Rim” sequel has delayed its proposed start of production.

Originally slated to begin shooting in November in Toronto this year, the site’s inside sources claim that filming on “Pacific Rim: Maelstrom” has now been pushed back into 2016 and it’s unclear which specific month it might resume.

The reason for the delay is also unknown at present, but it is long enough it could well impact the movie’s release date which is currently set for August 4th 2017. Potentially this pushes back the movie until late 2017/early 2018.

The site contacted Legendary Pictures for a comment and the studio said they were not allowed to speak about it at the moment.

Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day, Burn Gorman and Ron Perlman are all expected back for the follow-up to the 2014 film about mankind-created giant robots battling with giant Kaijus.
