Guillermo del Toro is collaborating with Zak Penn on the sequel to Pacific Rim, the director told BuzzFeed. Penn, who wrote The Incredible Hulk and the original draft of The Avengers, replaces Travis Beacham, who has gone on to work on the new Fox series Hieroglyph.
“I’m working very, very hard with Zak Penn,” del Toro said. “We’ve been working for a few months now in secret. We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham was involved in the storyline and now I’m writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul.”
