UPDATED: Pacific Rim 2 Officially a Go, Set for 2017 Release
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 06.26.2014

UPDATE: Guillermo Del Toro posted a video making the official announcement of Pacific Rim 2, which you can see below:

ORIGINAL: It's one more time into the breach for the Jaegers. Variety reports that Universal has greenlit Pacific Rim 2 with Guillermo Del Toro back to direct again. The film is set for a April 7th, 2017 release date.

The first film, which saw Charlie Hunnam and Rinko Kikuchi star as a pilot team of a giant mechanized "Jaeger" joining an international force of mechs battling giant kaiju who had crossed over to our dimension from a rift in the Pacific Ocean, released last summer. The $190 million-budgeted film disappointed stateside with just $101.8 million but was a big hit overseas, finishing out with a $411.9 million gross.

Del Toro was bullish about a sequel and earlier this month he confirmed that he was writing the script. He had said that he was working with Zak Penn "in secret," adding, "We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham [co-writer of the first film] was involved in the storyline and now I'm writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul." Legendary CEO Thomas Tull had said the studio was open to a new entry in the film as well.

"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," Del Toro had added, saying, that Raleigh (Hunnam) and Mako (Kikuchi) were in the script for the sequel.

Plot details are under wraps.
