Guillermo del Toro Eyeing Pacific Rim

Source: ComingSoon

March 7, 2011

Guillermo del Toro looks to have his sights set on a brand new project. Deadline is reporting that the director is interested in helming Legendary Pictures' Pacific Rim, the story of mankind's defense against attacking creatures.

Based on his original 25-page treatment, Travis Beachmam has written the screenplay, which is said to target a PG-13 audience.

Despite rumors to the contrary, nothing is locked on Del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness, meaning that taking the director's chair on Pacific Rim could put off the H.P. Lovecraft adaptation for some time.

Regardless of whether Del Toro takes the gig, Legendary looks just about set to move forward with Pacific Rim and, as such, expect official word on a director in the very near future.

Stated Guillermo del Toro: "We started developing PAC RIM a while ago with the mad passion and enthusiasm of a project unwatched and unchecked by politics or comparisons. We designed and shepherded the movie we want to make. We start shooting in September and we hit the ground running because we are so in sync. My partnership with Legendary represents, both in scale and creative demands, a huge step forward for me."

Exclusive: Charlie Day Talks Pacific Rim

Source: ComingSoon

June 24, 2011

Attending the press junket for Warner Bros.' upcoming comedy Horrible Bosses, ComingSoon.net had the opportunity to talk with one of the film's stars, Charlie Day.

We'll have the full interview available but soon, but Day did drop a few details about the current status of his involvement with the upcoming Guillermo del Toro project, Pacific Rim. Day was rumored to have joined the project, but he clarified his status for us and talked a bit about meeting Del Toro.

ComingSoon.net: You just signed on for a tour of the "Pacific Rim"...
Charlie Day: I'm not officially signed on so I've been told to dodge around answering questions, but I've definitely been having conversations with them about it. I'd hate to say "I'd like to sign on" because I don't want them to low-ball me [laughs] but hopefully that'll all work out.

CS: What was it like meeting the master, Guillermo del Toro?
Day: I was very thrilled to find out he'd seen every single episode of "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia." That's why we were meeting. Because "Pan's Labyrinth" is up there as one of the greatest movies ever made.

CS: He's such a personality. He's read every book, he's seen every movie. If you were to sign on would you have a "Monster Approval" clause in your contract?
Day: [laughs] I will not be given monster approval, but when it comes to Guillermo you let him do all the approving.

CS: Well I hope you can land it because it sounds like an awesome frickin' project.
Day: I hope so too.

Horrible Bosses hits theaters on July 8th.

Exclusive: Guillermo del Toro on Hellboy 3 & Pacific Rim

Source: ShockTillYouDrop

June 27, 2011

Shock Till You Drop just spoke with Guillermo del Toro about Don't Be Afraid of the Dark, opening in theaters on August 26. During our conversation, we pressed him for details on Pacific Rim.

"Huge" is the word he used to describe the monsters featured in the film, which concerns a giant monster invasion and the mech suits mankind creates to battle the beasts. "This is my most un-modest film, this has everything. The scale is enormous and I'm just a big kid having fun."

Del Toro will be returning to Toronto shortly after doing press for "Dark" to continue pre-production.

He also touched on last week's news item in which Mike Mignola told a reporter that del Toro likely won't return for Hellboy 3.

The director told us that he WOULD like to do a third film, but his schedule is so nuts "by the time I get to it and by the time we got Ron [Perlman] back, he'll be a HellMAN and in a wheelchair," del Toro joked.

Before I wrapped with him, del Toro assured us that he's still interested in doing Frankenstein, regardless of how many similar projects are in development. "My take is so unique, it will set it apart," he said. Universal still has interest in getting the film off the ground.

New Video Reveals the Fake Tokyo Set of Pacific Rim

Source: ComingSoon

April 10, 2012

The very first look at one of the sets from Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim is now online, thanks to Canada's CBC News (via On Location Vacations), who, in the video here, explore a Toronto street converted to look like Tokyo in the wake of a giant monster attack.

Now in production, the film sees a future Earth defending itself from attacking Kaiju creatures and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., Diego Klattenhoff and Ron Perlman.

Set for release on July 12, 2013, Pacific Rim is referred by the news site as both Still Seas and Silent Seas, though both are likely just production titles.

Kaiju, Robots, Guillermo del Toro - It's the Plot Synopsis for Pacific Rim!

by ShockTillYouDrop

May 23, 2012

Market Saw received a plot crunch for Guillermo del Toro's massive cinematic undertaking Pacific Rim, due in theaters on July 17th from Warner Bros. and Legendary. This thing is going to make you grin from ear to ear. The site adds that a big Comic-Con 2012 preview is being prepared. Exciting stuff. Read on...

From acclaimed filmmaker Guillermo del Toro comes Warner Bros. Pictures’ and Legendary Pictures’ epic sci-fi action adventure “Pacific Rim.”

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Oscar-nominee Guillermo del Toro (“Pan’s Labyrinth”) is directing “Pacific Rim” from a script by Travis Beacham (“Clash of the Titans”). Thomas Tull, Jon Jashni and Mary Parent are producing, with Callum Greene serving as executive producer.

The film stars Charlie Hunnam (TV’s “Sons of Anarchy”), Idris Elba (“Thor”), Rinko Kikuchi (“The Brothers Bloom”), Charlie Day (“Horrible Bosses”), and Ron Perlman (the “Hellboy” films). The ensemble cast also includes Max Martini, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins, Jr., Burn Gorman, Larry Joe Campbell, Diego Klattenhoff, and Brad William Henke.

This sounds like it can be so much fun.

Unless it takes itself way to seriously and just ends up a mess.
But with Guillermo at the helm, I think we should be in good hands.

Guillermo del Toro on the Monstrous Scale of Pacific Rim

Source: ComingSoon

June 8, 2012

Production still underway on his Pacific Rim, Guillermo del Toro spoke with Total Film about the enormous scale of his Kaiju epic.

"When we’re talking about the physicality of the fight," he said, "we ended up building several blocks of Hong Kong. And literally demolished them. We built a building and then we took down the buildings. We built command centres of the robots that were the size of the house. We started them on hydraulic rigs that shoot and elevated them and moved them round so you could really get a sense of the physical nature driving a robot like this."

The film, set for release on July 12, 2013, Pacific Rim is officially described as follows:

When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes-a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)-who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse.

Guillermo del Toro Describes Battles in Pacific Rim

by SuperHeroHype

June 20, 2012

Guillermo del Toro is deep into production on Pacific Rim - his, in short, giant robots versus giant monsters epic which is opening July 17, 2013. The man has already done a bit of talking to Total Film about what's to come and now more quotes from his interview have hit the web.

Via CBM, a few choice quotes from the print interview.

"We had a Tokyo scene that we shot here in Toronto. We had several Hong Kong scenes and a few scenes in Australia, through the television. We briefly see the kaiju take over San Francisco. The whole Pacific Rim needs a sense of danger."

"We take the battles far and above! Two or three of them happen in places where there have never been a battle between kaiju and robots. From the bottom of the ocean to the atmosphere of the Earth. We have a battle in a storm at sea. Every battle we try to do differently. One is seen from the point of view of a single person. We never cut away from that point of view."


Charlie Hunnam, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Willem Dafoe, Robert Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr., Diego Klattenhoff and Ron Perlman star.
