Writer/director Guillermo del Toro has tweeted that he has turned in the script and budget for Pacific Rim 2, although that doesn’t mean we’re going to be seeing the movie anytime soon.

PACIFIC RIM 2: Budget and script went in. No answers yet. If anything happens, I will post. If nothing happens, I will just keep rambling.
Although there are strong rumors saying that the sequel to the 2013 sci-fi action film won’t happen, del Toro did promise that he would turn in a script, leaving the choice to the studios. Whether or not the apocalypse will be cancelled a second time is now in their hands.
