Hellboy 2 Finds A HomeGoon
Awhile back we learned that Sony had dropped Hellboy 2 and it looked like the film may never be made. But thankfully the folks over at iFMagazine were at the Weekend of Horror's when del Toro revealed that the film had been picked up.
"We're moving studios right now," says Del Toro. "They don't have a deal with Sony any more and we are looking for financing for HELLBOY 2. It's at Paramount right now. It's bigger in scale, but not necessarily in budget. Abe Sapien has a much bigger part, and we're keeping closer to the mythology of the comics." Del Toro giggled with glee as he revealed a singer whose music would be part of the film. "There is a song by Barry Manilow, and you'll have to find out about how that fits in. I know you are all saying 'what the f**k is that?!'"
Hopefully that means del Toro will begin seriously working on the film very soon. I never really understood why this film didn't immediately turn around and make a sequel. They seem to do that with every other film except the good ones. As long as Selma Blair graces the screen, you can bet I'll be there when they release it.
