‘PACIFIC RIM: UPRISING’ DIRECTOR TALKS PLANS FOR THE FRANCHISE





 

Well, surprise surprise, I write and post my review of Pacific Rim:Uprising and even mention how the ending leaves things open to a sequel, and then director and co-writer Steven DeKnight talks to ‘Cinema Blend’ about a possible future for the series.

“I can’t give any details, but yes, I have a very clear idea for the future. When we were developing Uprising I was constantly jotting down notes about what I would want to do for the next movie. So I have a very, very rough outline of what that movie would be. And the plan was always to do the third installment, and then at the end of that movie expand the universe to a Star Wars/Star Trek-style [franchise] where it could go in many different directions. Different stories, main canon, side stories, standalones, the whole thing”.

 

So basically he wants to turn it into yet another bloody cinematic universe. Enough already! How about just concentrating on making the third movie really good, and then leaving it.

I'm a huge film fan and will watch pretty much any type of film, from Martial Arts to Westerns, from Romances [though I don't really like Romcoms!]] to Historical Epics. Though I most certainly 'have a life', I tend to go to the cinema twice a week! However,ever since I was a kid, sneaking downstairs when my parents had gone to bed to watch old Universal and Hammer horror movies, I've always been especially fascinated by horror, and though I enjoy all types of horror films, those Golden Oldies with people like Boris Karloff and Christopher Lee probably remain my favourites. That's not to say I don't enjoy a bit of blood and gore every now and again though, and am also a huge fan of Italian horror, I just love the style.
