Pacific Rim 2 news these days seems to be like a Bryan Hitch drawn comic. They come out bi-monthly with delays always hampering the fun (the last time was when we learned who'd be directing it: Steven S. DeKnight). The latest bit of Pacific Rim 2 news is that a new writer has signed up for the sequel involving Kaiju vs. Jaegers. That name is Derek Connolly (as per the Hollywood Reporter), who co-wrote last year's Jurassic World. Let us hope he was the genius behind the T-Rex & Raptor vs. I-Rex idea. Because THAT was freaking awesome.


*sniff* That scene gets to my inner Dinosaur-loving child everytime. *ahem*

Anyway, back to the portion of the Hollywood Reporter article as it possibly talks about why we haven't heard about anyone from the previous cast so far signed on for this. 


at one point it was to have been set many years after the original movie and where the monster-fighting robot suits known as Jaegers have become commonplace.


Pacific Rim 2 we have no idea when it'll be arriving, but we hope eventually and that nothing Michael Bay-related forces rescheduling like it did with Godzilla 2
