In what is sort of the Internet equivalent of 'King Kong' vs. 'Godzilla,' Bloody-Disgusting and AICN are offering conflicting reports on the future direction of Guillermo Del Toro's highly anticipated monster movie 'Pacific Rim.'

We speculated earlier this week that the tragic events in Japan might impact the direction of Warner Bros. and Legendary's giant monster invasion film – and it appears that may indeed be happening.

Bloody-Disgusting spoke to an insider close to the production who's telling them that Legendary has asked Del Toro (who signed on to the project recently after his adaptation of HP Lovecraft's 'At the Mountains of Madness' fell through) to rewrite the screenplay for 'Pacific Rim' – making it so no attacks take place in Japan. Early reports on the film's script stated that a giant monster would rise up from the ocean floor in 2012 and attack the island nation.

According to BD's source, Del Toro has yet to respond to the request.
