Legendary Pictures has made a pre-emptive buy on Pacific Rim, sci-fi spec script from Clash of the Titans screenwriter Travis Beacham. According to Deadline, Pacific Rim is “set in a future in which malevolent creatures threaten the earth, the planet must band together and use highly advanced technology to eradicate the growing menace.”

Pacific Rim is being set up as yet another of Legendary Pictures’ tentpole films. The studio has 'Inception' coming out this summer, and in development it has Batman 3 and the Superman reboot, and adaptations of the video games Mass Effect and World of Warcraft (with the latter being directed by Sam Raimi).
