Screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton on PACIFIC RIM
Looking to hear some interesting things on the upcoming monster/robot bash? After the jump you'll find some interesting quotes from the two screenwriters.
Next summer Legendary Studios will unleash the monster movie known as Pacific Rim into theaters. Over at Fear Net, an interview was posted with screenwriters Marcus Dunstan and Patrick Melton, below are the most important things they had to say.
"It's giant monsters versus giant robots, and Guillermo del Toro is the only person who could bring it to you. That was an amazing experience, because we read the script, and so we went in knowing what the producers and studio wanted us to do; and we went in and met Guillermo, and he started showing us the tests by ILM. They were just mind-blowing. I think they'll probably show something at Comic-Con 2012. Because they should be done by then, or close to done by then. I'm telling you, it's gonna rule Hall H when Guillermo, the king of geeks, comes out and shows some of the stuff he's shot. People are gonna be blow away."
"Bring dad, bring the kids, bring everybody, and hold on."
"This is a PG movie." "Most of his stuff is pretty edgy, for the most part. Nothing below PG-13 that I can think of. So this is his sort of four-quadrant movie. But it's got all the traits of a Guillermo movie, with the monsters and the younger characters and the things that go bump in the night… It's pretty great."
Excited? You should be, I have a feeling this is going to be the surprise hit of 2013. If the film succeeds, it may give the studio an incentive to get started with production on Godzilla. Anyways, for the rest of the short interview, hit the link at the bottom.
Pacific Rim stomps and blasts its way into theaters next summer.
