Del Toro told io9: “We’re at the end of our second week. We are shooting everything for the main complex in the movie, which is a huge complex in Hong Kong where the robots are maintained. We are doing that, while building downtown Hong Kong streets.”
Being surrounded by robots (and we know they’re building some practical parts) isn’t a bad way to spend the day.
Del Toro will be shooting Pacific Rim well into 2012.
Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba, Charlie Day, Rinko Kikuchi, Max Martini, Rob Kazinsky, Clifton Collins Jr. and Diego Klattenhoff star. The film opens July 12, 2013.
