PACIFIC RIM Screenwriters Say The Guillermo del Toro-directed Monster Movie Is Going To ‘Kick Major Ass’

Last month, I got to interview Rinko Kikuchi and I asked her about PACIFIC RIM, which she’s a part of, sadly she wasn’t much help and I blamed the language barrier.
As you know, this Guillermo del-Toro movie is about earth’s giant robots fighting invading alien giant monsters, the Legendary Pictures’ film will be PG-rated, and screenwriting team Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton who brought us My Bloody Valentine 3D and Piranha 3D, rewrote the script by Travis Beacham.
Dunstan and Melton recently chatted with Fearnet and explained what you the fans can anticipate..

“Pacific Rim is Guillermo del Toro’s new movie, which is coming out in 2013. It is going to kick major ass. It’s giant monsters versus giant robots, and Guillermo del Toro is the only person who could bring it to you. That was an amazing experience, because we read the script, and so we went in knowing what the producers and studio wanted us to do; and we went in and met Guillermo, and he started showing us the tests by ILM. They were just mind-blowing. I think they’ll probably show something at Comic-Con 2012. Because they should be done by then, or close to done by then. I’m telling you, it’s gonna rule Hall H when Guillermo, the king of geeks, comes out and shows some of the stuff he’s shot. People are gonna be blow away.”

“We’ve been denied a Guillermo del Toro movie for a few years now, and we had the feeling in sharing some time with him that there’s been a well, that became a dam, that became a crushing force waiting to burst and give everything to Pacific Rim. I think he’s the Santa Claus of fantasy, and he’s going to gift everyone with an experience. Bring dad, bring the kids, bring everybody, and hold on.”

Awesome! I’ll be at Comic-Con 2012 this summer and if they show any footage of PACIFIC RIM or anything at all about that movie, I’ll definitely tweet it, blog it and tell you all about it by the minute.
And those guys are right! It’s about time we get another GDT movie! Viva la rasa!
