Guillermo del Toro and Zak Penn are writing the script for Pacific Rim 2

Guillermo del Toro on set of Pacific Rim

Fans of Pacific Rim have been calling for a sequel ever since its release, holding on to director Guillermo del Toro's desires to return to that world. While doing press for his new TV show The Strain, del Toro spoke about Pacific Rim 2 (not the official title)

"I’m working very, very hard with Zak Penn. We’ve been working for a few months now in secret. We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham was involved in the storyline and now I’m writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul." 

With all of this current projects del Toro is attached to, it's interesting that he's chosen this project to do. There was speculation a while back that the next Pacific Rim film would be a prequel, and del Toro addressed that rumor:

"Some people were wondering if we were going to do the prequel. I was never interested in doing that first wave of invasion. I’m going for very new, very crazy ideas on the second one, which are very different from the first one – but you will get really great spectacle."

While I personally didn't care that much for Pacific Rim, I do like del Toro and would be interested in seeing a sequel. What do you think? Did you like Pacific Rim? Should they make a sequel? Leave your thoughts in the comments section.
