Actor Max Martini, currently filming the dirty-damsel flick “50 Shades of Grey”, hopes Guillermo del Toro’s follow-up to “Transformers in Water” “Pacific Rim” will be a prequel – for obvious reasons.

Speaking with Empire Magazine, the actor behind the Aussie Jaeger pilot expressed interest in reprising the part.

“Working with Guillermo (del Toro) was a highlight, and the green-screen work was new to me….It’s funny, I fell in love with this character (Herc Hansen). The key component was this relationship I had with my son, exploring the dysfunction and the loss, so where does Herc go from here? I don’t know. It’ll be interesting to see where Guillermo (del Toro) and Travis Beacham take it. I don’t know if it’s a prequel or a sequel, but if it’s a prequel you’ll learn more about Herc’s family history. But Guillermo has such a vivid imagination, it could go anywhere.”

Obviously, Martini has no idea where del Toro plans to go with the next one… he’s just hopeful for a payday. Having said that, there is a graphic novel – by Travis Beacham – that’s a prequel to the events in the movie, so maybe it’s turned out so well that del Toro wants to transform manuscript into movie, and tell the backstory of these things?
