Guillermo del Toro has started scriptwriting for the untitled Pacific Rim sequel. While promoting his new FX series "", the director spilled to BuzzFeed that he's already working on the "" script along with Zak Penn ("", "", "").

"I'm working very, very hard with Zak Penn," he dished on. "We've been working for a few months now in secret. We found a way to twist it around. Travis Beacham [co-writer of the first film, now working on Fox's ''] was involved in the storyline and now I'm writing with Zak because Travis has become a TV mogul."

While the plot is still kept under wraps, the director revealed he would bring back Raleigh Becket () and Mako Mori (). "Some people were wondering if we were going to do the prequel. I was never interested in doing that first wave of invasion," he said. "I'm going for very new, very crazy ideas on the second one, which are very different from the first one - but you will get really great spectacle."

Despite the script development, the sequel hasn't got greenlight. "I don't have the money, but I'm proceeding like it is happening," he said.
