Heat Vision is reporting that Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham and director Guillermo del Toro will co-write the script for the sequel to the July 12, 2013 release.

According to the site, "[Guillermo] Del Toro will supervise the writing of the sequel script, although at this stage it's unclear whether he will direct. The filmmaker yesterday committed to helming a haunted house story, Crimson Peak, which Legendary — wanting to stay in the del Toro business — picked up from Universal. A January 2014 production start is being eyed."

Starring Charlie Hunnam, Rinko Kikuchi, Idris Elba, Ron Perlman and Charlie Day, Pacific Rim is described as follows:

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 and an untested trainee 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.

The first trailer for the film is expected to come online in eight days going by the countdown clock at the viral site PanPacificDefense.com.
