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. In addition to those more concrete projects, the filmmaker always seems to have a few ideas percolating, most of which never come to fruition. 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.

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.

Whatever you make of FX’s Guillermo del Toro-adapted vampire thriller The Strain, the vampire apocalypse isn’t about to end with Team Eph’s current run.

While his honesty is quite admirable, perhaps Charlie Hunnam shouldn’t be biting the hand that feeds him — but that’s what he did in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly. While discussing his upcoming role in Guy Ritchie’s King Arthur movie (where he apparently plays a Knight who sells Levi’s jeans in catalogs), the conversation turned to effects, which then turned to Pacific Rim, which then led to Hunnam sticking his foot in his mouth and then trying unsuccessfully to remove it.

Before Peter Jackson took the reigns of the franchise, Guillermo del Toro was supposed to direct The Hobbit, and planned to bring his friend and longtime collaborator Ron Perlman to voice the dragon Smaug. But financial problems and delays at MGM eventually forced del Toro from the project; after Peter Jackson, king of The Lord of the Rings, signed on to direct in his place, he replaced Perlman with Benedict Cumberbatch. That’s just one of the facts packed into the latest episode of You Think You Know Movies, which takes you on an unexpected journey behind the scenes of the first film in The Hobbit trilogy!

Because just one movie about giant robots punching giant monsters in the face simply isn’t enough, Pacific Rim 2 is officially set to begin filming this Fall in Toronto. But that’s not the only piece of news worth sharing – it seems that Guillermo del Toro’s sequel may have a subtitle and that subtitle may be Maelstrom.

That pin in your balloon of hopeful enthusiasm comes straight from director Guillermo del Toro, who says that series star Ron Perlman has been a little premature with his attempts to rally fans around a third entry in the series.
