Will the Pacific Rim sequel currently being developed by Guillermo del Toro pickup from where the first film left off?

Speaking to Empire Magazine in celebration of being named the film magazine's "Badass of the Year", actor Max Martini shared the following about working with del Toro on Pacific Rim the first go-around and returning for the sequel. "Working with Guillermo (del Toro) was a highlight, and the green-screen work was new to me....It's funny, I fell in love with this character (Herc Hansen). The key component was this relationship I had with my son, exploring the dysfunction and the loss, so where does Herc go from here? I don't know. It'll be interesting to see where Guillermo (del Toro) and Travis Beacham take it. I don't know if it's a prequel or a sequel, but if it's a prequel you'll learn more about Herc's family history. But Guillermo has such a vivid imagination, it could go anywhere." So, could the next Pacific Rim installment that Guillermo del Toro is currently working on actually be an adaptation of the prequel graphic novel from Travis Beacham? Stay tuned.

"When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity’s resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested trainee (Rinko Kikuchi)—who are teamed to drive a legendary but seemingly obsolete Jaeger from the past. Together, they stand as mankind’s last hope against the mounting apocalypse."
