10-18-2006 - GDT Talks Hellboy 3
GDT says in an interview with IGN that he is hopeful there might be a Hellboy 3:
"I've talked to [Hellboy creator Mike] Mignola about the third one. He seemed to like [my idea], and that is that the way the love story would pay off in the third movie would be completely unexpected," hints del Toro. "I knew what I wanted to do on the first one, but I had no idea if we ever would get to do a second one. And now that we are I really am laying down the breadcrumbs that will lead you to a very, very ・hopefully ・powerful denouement of that loving couple."
GDT tells IGN that Hellboy 2 is in preproduction and Francisco Ruiz Velasco, Wayne Barlow, Ty Ellingson, and Mike Mignola are designing creatures right now. The movie is being budgeted in London and Budapest and GDT hopes to start shooting next year.
In another interview, GDT told IGN that he has been very pleased working with Universal for H2, and has been fantasizing about Hellboy someday combatting the Universal monsters.
"I would love to [go with the classic versions], I would love to," laughs the director, who says that Frankenstein and the Creature from the Black Lagoon are his favorites. "[Hellboy creator Mike] Mignola, when we closed the deal with Universal, we both looked at each other and just said, 'Frankenstein!'"
