1. Pacific Rim: Maelstrom
It was recently announced that the sequel to Del Toro’s hugely successful robots-vs-monsters blockbuster has been indefinitely shelved. It’s not for lack of enthusiasm: there are legal wrangles to sort out before the film can start shooting. Judging from statements made by Del Toro while the project was still a going concern, we’re guessing the plot would involve the Jaeger pilots going through a dimensional portal to fight the demonic Kaiju on their own turf.
Del Toro is working on the fourth draft of the screenplay: ‘But very likely it won’t be my next movie. It’s still active, it’s just not in pre-production. We have a really good story, but it’s a little above my pay grade from here!’
