Global News is reporting that the official working title for the follow up to 2013’s giant monster movie, Pacific Rim, is “Maelstrom.”
“Maelstrom” is set to start filming in Toronto at Pinewood Toronto Studios in November, with filming expected to continue “well in to 2016.” And, yes, director Guillermo Del Toro is back to helm the sequel. The new film is set to take place a couple of years after the events of Pacific Rim, and will focus on the kaiju (the giant monsters that Earth’s mightiest pilots were defending against). Not much else is currently known.
After an initial delay, “Maelstrom” is slated for a August 4th, 2017 release.
