Guillermo Del Toro On The Possibility Of A PACIFIC RIM/GODZILLA Crossover
Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro shares his thoughts on a possible crossover film with Legendary's Godzilla reboot, saying that he would love to see it happen even though the two films appear to have different directions.
Currently, Legendary Pictures has two giant monster related films coming out - Guillermo del Toro's Pacific Rim on July 12th, and Gareth Edwards' Godzilla reboot on May 16th, 2014. Both films will be released in 3D. Since Godzilla engages in monstrous battles on a regular basis, could we see the Jaegers from Pacific Rim take him on? Collider asked del Toro about the possibility of a Pacific Rim Vs. Godzilla crossover film, and he says that (obviously) there are no plans for such a movie. He does, however, say that he would love to see it happen, but the two different approaches to the films ("super bright and saturated" for Pacific Rim, and dark and grounded for Godzilla) may cause difficulties in properly placing in the same epic.
"So far with the [Pacific Rim] sequel, what we’re writing, what we’re creating, is very different, so there are no plans. Hypothetically, I would love the fuck out of it. I would love to see a jaeger and Godzilla duke it out. That would be too much for the human brain. But I don’t think there are plans on that. I don’t even know what direction they’re taking Godzilla in. I know somewhat that it’s grounded differently. Pacific Rim, my aspiration was, the color, the saturation of color, was almost an acid-drip version of the heavy-metal coloring that I loved when Richard Corben was working there, when [Jean-Claude] Forest was working there. Super bright, super saturated, the crazy color and aesthetic. And Godzilla is more realistic, somewhat. That’s my thinking. That’s what I’ve heard. I don’t even know which way they’re going."
