-In the same interview, the head of Legendary had this to say about Pacific Rim 2:

I was literally just with Guillermo on the set of Crimson Peak*. We talk about it and have some pretty great ideas. If they come to fruition and we get a great script, then we’re open to it. Fans seem pretty passionate about it and working with Guillermo. So, we’re open to it.

I’ve heard a lot of contradicting things about the sequel. I saw a report that Guillermo Del Toro had already written it a year or two ago, but from that quote that appears not to be the case. We’ll see.

*I am so excited about Crimson Peak. Tom Hiddleston, Doug Jones, Jim Beaver and Jessica Chastain in a scary GDT film. Yess.
