In a recent interview with IGN, Guillermo del Toro stated that Pacific Rim 2 is still being made despite any cancellation rumors. The director did admit the film is more ‘on-hold’ while he finishes up other projects but he is still working on the script and production value.
“It’s not cancelled… I’m gonna do a little movie in between, if [the studio] deem[s] to approve it. But in the meantime we’re turning in a budget and a script in three weeks [on Pacific Rim 2]. So it’s still active. I still have my producer working on the budget and I still have the writer working on the script.”
The original release date was set for August 4th, 2017 but now with the delay in production, I am sure we will hear of a new later date.
