However, the directors are yet to reveal his role, but he will most probably join the rest of the crew in putting an end to the apocalyptic war.

Pacific Rim 2 is currently scheduled to release on August 4, 2017. The filming will begin on February 23. The movie is a sequel to the 2013 title, Pacific Rim.

The Simpsons Movie Sequel To Not Happen?

Many Simpsons fans have been eagerly waiting to see a sequel of The Simpsons movie. However, there is currently no official word on whether there will be another Simpsons movie or not. When asked about the sequel of The Simpsons movie, here’s what the writer behind the series, James L. Brooks had to say.

“I’m very involved, and it’s a particular exciting year for us. We’re doing our first hour special, and we did a small virtual reality thing—we’re the first television show to do that. That was labor-intensive, and it meant learning a lot. It’s just been great. Again, you serve a movie that’s bigger than you, and it doesn’t get bigger than The Simpsons. A lot of us have been together forever. That’s my day job.”

This pretty much confirmed that he is currently not that much interested in making a sequel of the movie. However, one thing to keep in mind here is that the first Simpsons movie was a huge success, so there is a chance that a sequel will happen.

Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 Is Getting A New Title?

On the other hand, the upcoming fantasy film, Pirates of the Caribbean 5 might get a new title. Currently, Pirates Of The Caribbean 5 is rumored to be titled as Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: Salazar’s Revenge in the UK, and Pirates Of The Caribbean 5: The Revenge of Salazar in Spain and Italy. However, there is currently no official word on whether this will happen or not, but the chances of it to actually happen are high. In the movie, Salazar will be seen trying to take revenge from Captain Jack Sparrow. So the title pretty much suits the movie.

Keep in mind that even if this happens, the story of the movie will still remain the same. So there is no need to worry.
