Guillermo del Toro to Film Black-and-White Indie Before ‘Pacific Rim 2′

Guillermo del Toro Black and White Movie
Warner Bros.

Pacific Rim 2‘ is finally on the way for a 2017 release. While the first didn’t do so well in the US, it killed overseas, proving that the world does want more Jaegers. But that doesn’t mean director Guillermo del Toro can’t squeeze in a smaller film before then.

Before ‘Pacific Rim 2′ hits theaters on April 7, 2017, del Toro told Collider that he’s planning to make a smaller, black-and-white movie. He said:

Right away, in February/March I should [start on] another very small movie, black and white, really, really bizarre before starting—we start pre-production on ‘Pacific Rim 2′ in August, and then I interrupt it briefly to go into the first of next year to do this strange little movie, and then I restart it and go all the way until we start shooting ‘Pacific Rim 2′ at the end of 2015 for release in 2017.

And, of course, it wouldn’t be a Guillermo del Toro movie without “one great creature in it.” Though the director was pretty tight-lipped about the project as a whole, he did reveal that he would “love to have John Hurt” (his ‘Hellboy’ actor) as part of the cast, in addition to a “not well-known” actress, who has one feature and one short to her name, for the lead role.

There are so many ideas buzzing around in del Toro’s head that it’s exciting to see what he’s got in the works. Aside from ‘Pacific Rim 2,’ he’s in post-production on his horror story ‘Crimson Peak,’ which stars Charlie Hunnam and Mia Wasikowska, and he has been expressing a desire to bring ‘Justice League Dark’ to the big screen. Given the originality and creative decisions del Toro makes, we’re surely eager to hear more about what this new in-between project entails.
