Legendary has asked Guillermo del Toro to re-write the screenplay for their giant monster movie Pacific Rim so that no attacks take place in Japan.
Guillermo del Toro to rewrite Pacific Rim due to Japan disaster
Released last week, a detailed synopsis of the film has Guillermo del Toro creating two worlds. The first is an alternate version of Earth in the near future, decades after a historic date in November 2012 when the first kaiju, a towering Godzilla-like beast, emerged from a hole in the Pacific Ocean and attacked the city of Osaka, Japan. The second is "The Anteverse," another universe on the other side of that gaping portal, 5 miles below our ocean's surface.
The project is believed to be budgeted at $150 million and will be R rated. Production will start sometime this summer.
Pacific Rim comes to theaters July 12th, 2013 and stars Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Diego Klattenhoff, Burn Gorman, Robert Kazinsky. The film is directed by Guillermo del Toro.
