Guillermo del Toro’s wanted movie includes time travel

Award-winning director Guillermo del Toro There are many movies under his supervision, from sci-fi action works like Hell boy and Blade II to gothic romantic movies like Crimson Peak and Shape of water. One of his most notable brands Pacific rim achieved critical acclaim with the first film, but despite writing the script for the sequel, the film changed distributors and del Toro’s script was scrapped when Steven S. DeKnight took the lead role of the project.

It’s no secret that the sequel, titled Pacific Rim: Uprising significantly changed under the direction of DeKnight, using the script of Jon Spaihts instead of the original del Toro version. In an interview with The Wrap, del Toro delved into what the original version of the film looked like, which featured a character with a more significant role.

The sequel we received will be available to the audience in the next ten years in the future, where John Boyega’s Jake Pentecost leads a new generation of Jaeger pilots, and Mako Mori (Rinko Kikuchi). was reduced to a hastily killed off-screen supporting character.

But that’s not how del Toro envisioned it. In the interview, he describes his movie plot that:

“The villain is this tech guy who basically invented internet 2.0. And then they realized that all his patents had reached him one morning. And slowly, they started to put this together and they said, ‘Oh, he got them from the precursors.’ Those who control kaiju. And then we discovered that the forerunner was us thousands of years in the future. They are trying to improve the terrain, trying to harvest the earth to survive. OH. And that we were wearing old biological suits that looked like aliens, but weren’t. We were inside. And that’s a really interesting paradox.”

A marked departure from the sequel was released, in that very few characters returned from the original film and the quality of the visual effects dropped drastically. Following on from her original synopsis, del Toro also expressed a desire to focus on the character of Mako, and see her grow in her original arc. “For me, the hero is Mako Mori.” Del Toro said, “Not only do I want her to live, I also want her to be one of the main characters in the second movie.”


It seems that fans enjoyed del Toro’s original vision, but sadly the timing didn’t match. However, you can enjoy more of del Toro’s amazing storytelling in his new movie Nightmare Ally premieres in theaters on December 17.
