For Del Toro, Which Comes First: Crimson Peak or Pacific Rim 2?

Pacific Rim doesn’t open until July 12, 2013, but Guillermo del Toro’s attention in the director’s seat following the release is already in demand.  The haunted house/ghost story Crimson Peak seemed like a priority, that is until Legendary announced Del Toro and Travis Beacham are already in development on a script for Pacific Rim 2.  If Pacific Rim becomes the blockbuster summer movie everyone hopes it becomes, I can totally see Legendary putting the sequel on the fast track, pushing Crimson Peak aside. asked Del Toro today which post-Pacific Rim project is going to take priority.

“We’re going to do Crimson Peak first,” he told us.  “We’re going to write the screenplay [for Pacific Rim 2] and take it from there.  Depending on the screenplay, I’ll do it or not.”

More with Del Toro very soon…
