Pacific Rim 2 Script In The Works

I’m very excited to hear this news personally and hope that it actually becomes a reality!

Buzzfeed recently chatted with director Guillermo del Toro about his upcoming television series The Strain, which will premiere on FX. During their discussion Buzzfeed asked him about the possibility of another Pacific Rim film. “I’m working very, very hard with Zak Penn (“The Incredible Hulk”),” he told Buzzfeed. “We’ve been working for a few months now in secret. We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham [co-writer of the first film, now working on Fox’s Hieroglyph] was involved in the storyline and now I’m writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul.”

At this time, Legendary Pictures has not given Pacific Rim 2 the greenlight. In March, Legendary CEO Thomas Tull told Collider, “It did north of 400 million dollars globally and both the home video sales and the merchandise have way over-indexed, so it seems like fans really loved the world. So we’re going to sit down with Guillermo and as long as we think it’s authentic and there’s something to say, we’re certainly open to it.”

As for the script, del Toro revealed that Jaeger pilots, Raleigh Becket (Charlie Hunnam) and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi), are involved in the storyline. Clearly, that means it is a sequel and not a prequel as many had speculated it might be. “Some people were wondering if we were going to do the prequel. I was never interested in doing that first wave of invasion,” del Toro said. He concluded with this spirited message about Pacific Rim 2: “I’m going for very new, very crazy ideas on the second one, which are very different from the first one — but you will get really great spectacle.”

Charlie Hunnam Says It’s ‘Heartbreaking’ Not To Be Starring In ‘Fifty Shades Of Grey’

“I felt like I had an interesting take on that character and felt like I could have done a good job of playing Christian Grey, otherwise I wouldn’t have taken it on in the first place,” Hunnam told Life & Style this past weekend. “When you put the time into something like that and a character comes alive in your mind, it’s heartbreaking not to be able to play him. … It was definitely kind of heartbreaking having to say goodbye to that character and not bring it to life.”

Hunnam says he’ll be among the first to see Dornan’s fearless take on Christian Grey when “Fifty Shades” opens next February.

“If they invite me to the premiere, I will go and see it there,” Hunnam said. “If not, I’ll go and buy some tickets on opening night.”

‘Sons Of Anarchy’ Scripts Are In, Filled With Angst and Revenge For Jax

The Academy voters are soon going to have to stop seeing Charlie Hunnam as a hunk, and add trained thespian to their list, and give this man an Emmy Award. Highlight Hollywood has learned that filming for season 7 of the FX smash hit TV series “Sons of Anarchy” is set to begin at the end of the month, and Jax (Charle Hunnam) will be on a mission to avenge wife Tara’s (Maggie Siff) death. We know where that will ultimately lead, don’t we?

The show’s creator Kurt Sutter recently revealed that episodes 1 & 2 of what will be the shows final season were submitted to FX with a disclaimer due to their dark tone. Could mad genius Sutter write anything less?

Last season, in one of the shows most brutal, but amazingly produced and shot scenes, Tara was killed by Jax’s mom, Gemma (Katey Segal). These two ladies had a heck of a year in 2013, and one of them (Segal) has even more drama coming this fall.

It now appears definite that both Gemma and Juice (Theo Rossi), who helped her cover up the murder, will face Jax’s wrath and shall we say, may not survive, confirming one of the many rumors about this last season.

Show fans know Sutter is not afraid to do the unthinkable, as evidenced by the surprising murders of Clay (Ron Perlman) and Tara in season 6. This means no one, not even Jax, is safe, although Sutter previously said openly that with Opie gone he would think twice before killing off fan favorites like Tigs or Chibs.
