Pacific Rim is a big ‘ol popcorn movie that shines with Guillermo del Toro‘s personality. After establishing a vibrant near-future in which Jaegers and Kaiju clash with glee, del Toro bowed out of directing the sequel, Pacific Rim: Uprising. For a while, especially when the project struggled to the green light, del Toro was still onboard to direct, but scheduling issues led to his departure.
The producer is still very much involved in Uprising, but of course, Steven S. DeKnight (Daredevil) eventually stepped in to direct the sequel. Find out why Guillermo del Toro left Pacific Rim 2 below.
