Guillermo del Toro Reveals Who Will Return For ‘Pacific Rim 2’

“I think that two of our main characters like in the first one are Burn [Gorman] and Charlie [Day],” he said

Fans of ‘Pacific Rim’ have been ganging out for more news on the films sequel since the announcement of it and the planned animated series was made.

In a fresh new interview the films creator Guillermo del Toro began talking about the specifics, which includes news on which cast members will return for the sequel.

“It’s not an immediate follow-up,” the director told Collider about the second movie, which will take place a number of years after the first. “It is the world having been freed of Kaiju, what happens to the world after — what happens to the Jaeger technology once the Kaiju are not a threat.  It’s quite a jump.”

If you think that this news means that we’ll not see anymore Kaiju attacked on major metropolitan city centres. Think again because later in the same interview del Torro revealed that “the Kaijus are very different” in the new movie, which means that we’ll still get to see them at some point in the new film.

For fans of the wacky scientists from ‘Pacific Rim’ del Torro had the following exciting news to share.


“I think that two of our main characters like in the first one are Burn [Gorman] and Charlie [Day],” he said, referring to the actors who played Dr. Hermann Gottlieb and Dr. Newton Geiszler, respectively. “They are really, really — I mean, honestly, they are probably the guys I have the most fun writing along with Hannibal Chau [Ron Perlman’s black market dealer] so just from a purely selfish drive, I like writing them.”

‘Pacific Rim 2,’ which del Toro will direct, is scheduled for an April 7, 2017 release.
