'Pacific Rim 2' to Shoot This Fall

Guillermo del Toro will reportedly return to Toronto in November to begin production on the sequel to his giant robots-versus-giant monsters slugfest "Pacific Rim."

According to Canada's Global News, the Legendary Pictures project will shoot under the title "Maelstrom" well into 2016, primarily at Pinewood Toronto Studios.

The 2013 film, which depicted humanity at war with colossal kaiju that emerge from dimensional portals to attack Earth's coastal cities, was also shot in Toronto.

Scheduled for release on Aug. 4 2017, "Pacific Rim 2" will be set a few years after the original, and focus more on the kaiju.
