Guillermo del Toro: My “Pacific Rim: Uprising” script involves time travel


“Pacific Rim” director Guillermo del Toro recently revealed the plot of “Pacific Rim: Uprising” originally developed by him.

In his idea, the protagonist of the sequel is Mako Mori played by Rinko Kikuchi instead of Jake played by John Boyega, and it will also involve plots such as time travel and time paradoxes.

After the launch of “Pacific Rim” in 2013, Guillermo del Toro was already preparing “Pacific Rim: Uprising” for a while.

However, the early stage of this project dragged on for a long time, coupled with the acquisition of Legendary Pictures, the preparation of the film can be described as twists and turns.

Guillermo del Toro withdrew from the “Pacific Rim: Uprising” crew in 2018, Steven S. Denett took over as the director, and the script was changed.

Not long ago, Toro told The Wrap website while promoting his new film “Nightmare Alley” that his “Pacific Rim: Uprising” story involved time travel and time paradoxes.

“The villain is a tech tycoon who invented things like Internet 2.0. People feel that this tycoon’s invention patent seems to have been obtained overnight.

It turns out that the inventions and creations of the tycoon were given to him by the ‘pioneers’-the ‘pioneers’ are those who control Kaiju.

The pioneers are human beings thousands of years later, who want to transform the earth, and want to’harvest’ the earth again to seek their own survival.

The protagonist will wear that kind of exoskeleton biochemical uniform, looking like an alien, with a human in the uniform.

This is a very interesting paradox… It’s really crazy. Some elements were adjusted and used in the final second part. “

Toro also stated that Mako Mori, played by Rinko Kikuchi, will be the protagonist of “Pacific Rim: Uprising”.

But she died shortly after she played in “Pacific Rim: Uprising” in 2018, and the protagonist was replaced by Jake played by John Boyega.

“For me, the protagonist/hero of the story is Mako Mori, and he is one of the main characters in the second part.”
