Although Guillermo del Toro’s Pacific Rim 2 might not be happening anymore, we still have Crimson Peak on the horizon.

Report: ‘Pacific Rim 2’ Has been ‘Halted Indefinitely’

by Matt Singer September 16, 2015 @ 10:54 AM
A fascinating new article in The Hollywood Reporter, details a growing battle between Universal Pictures and Legendary Pictures, the production company behind films like The Dark Knight, Man of Steel, Godzilla, and Jurassic World. This spat between entertainment titans sounds like it could grow into a full-on war akin to a rumble between giant robots and interdimensional aliens — partly over the studio’s reluctance to make a movie about giant robots warring with interdimensional aliens. That film, of course, is Pacific Rim 2, and according to THR, it’s been “halted indefinitely.”

Guillermo del Toro has a lot of potential projects on his plate, including the long-gestating Haunted Mansion movie for Disney (which may star Ryan Gosling) and Pacific Rim 2.

A new rumor suggests that del Toro has yet another movie in development, and what makes this one strange is that we’ve never heard him talk about it before.

It’s the kind of rumor that looks really great in a headline. What if a Pacific Rim sequel brought Godzilla, the King of the Monsters, into the fold? What if director Guillermo del Toro’s giant robots battled the legendary creature in the ultimate battle royale? The rumor has been gaining steam and we hate to be the ones to burst anyone’s bubble, but this isn’t going to happen.

‘Pacific Rim 2’ and ‘Haunted Mansion’ Updates From Guillermo del Toro

Legendary Pictures
Guillermo del Toro is a director who constantly has several projects on the table, and while that may seem odd to some, it’s actually a smart approach. Take Martin Scorsese, for instance, who always has many projects under consideration. Del Toro currently has a handful of films in the works, but only a couple that are moving forward for the time being: Pacific Rim 2 and his long-gestating Haunted Mansion.
