Although the film has not yet been greenlit for production, ascript for a possible Pacific Rim sequel is being written by Guillermo del Toro and Travis Beacham.
In a recent interview with IGN, del Toro revealed that he and his co-writer are hard at work on a screenplay. “No, we are writing the sequel. Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active. The decision to green light or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate. To me, what was beautiful and flattering was how people saw the movie not once or twice but three, four times or more. People that love it, love it with great passion. So I would love to continue telling stories about that world.”
Despite being a box office success worldwide, Pacific Rim performed badly in the U.S.
