While Pacific Rim has yet to hit theaters, director Guillermo Del Toro has already began preparations for a sequel. Del Toro is eager, but wants to be patient at the same time. He'd like time to work on a video game based on the movie and continue the graphic novel. Travis Beachum, who co-wrote the script for the movie, is writing a prequel graphic novel for the movie.
I have been and will always be a fan of Del Toro's work. I'm anxious to see Pacific Rim in theaters. Del Toro strikes me as a director who has faith in his work. If he's eager to do a sequel, then it might just work. People might scoff at the idea of giant robots fighting giant monsters, but Del Toro knows how to tell a story.
