‘Pacific Rim 2’ production delayed until 2016

LOS ANGELES: The production of Guillermo del Toro-directed sequel to “Pacific Rim” has reportedly been delayed.


The production, scheduled to take place in Toronto, would not start until next year.

To this point, there is no confirmation on the reason of the delay or what month it will begin.

“Pacific Rim 2” is considerably a long-gestating project. Del Toro was already talking about the sequel before the first movie arrived in theatres.

The follow-up was confirmed in November 2014 and seven months later Del Toro said he had planned a great storyline with epic battle at the end of the movie.

Legendary Pictures is yet to respond to the report.
