Maisie William for Pacific Rim 2?

Pacific Rim‘s director Guillermo del Toro muses that Maisie Williams (Arya Stark in Game of Thrones, Dr Who) will make an awesome Ranger in a Jaeger if the sequel goes ahead.

However, things are still up in the air regarding about the fate of the sequel. Variety reported that Universal Pictures removed the title from its release calendar but categorically denies that the movie is cancelled. Universal and Legendary, principal financial backers of the sequel stated that “while the film is being delayed indefinitely, the extra time would be used to ensure that the follow-up is the vanguard , fully-immersive experience that the franchise deserves.”

The director himself has been going around denying the cancellation in several interviews as well. Meanwhile Guillermo del Toro reveals some of his favourite Japanese anime that shaped up his vision as director today via Twitter. See if you can recognize these titles:

Now we all have to hope that the sequel will pass the corporate bean-counting and gave us another round of giant mechas beating the shit out of Kaiju again.
