become corporeal. And Hellboy, a creature of two worlds who's accepted by neither, must
choose between the life he knows and an unknown destiny that beckons him. Directed by
Guillermo del Toro, the film also stars David Hyde-Pierce, Jeffrey Tambor and Luke Goss.
HELLBOY returns to theatres on July 11th, 2008.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Luke Goss is rejoining director Guillermo del Toro for
Universal Pictures' HELLBOY 2: THE GOLDEN ARMY. The movie reunites the first movie's
principals -- Ron Perlman as Hellboy, Selma Blair as Liz Sherman and both David Hyde
Pierce and Doug Jones as Abe Sapien -- for a supernatural action-adventure that sees the
world of myth rebelling against humanity. Goss will play Prince Nuada, a ruthless leader
who treads the world above and the one below, defying his bloodline to awaken an
unstoppable army of creatures.
Lawrence Gordon, Lloyd Levin and Mike Richardson are producing. Del Toro and "Hellboy"
creator Mike Mignola wrote the script. Filming is scheduled to begin in June in Budapest for
an August 1st, 2008, release. Goss worked with del Toro on "Blade II," in which he played
bad guy Nomak. He appeared in Hallmark's "Frankenstein" miniseries, which also starred
Donald Sutherland and William Hurt, as well as "The Man" from New Line and "One Night
With the King," with Omar Sharif and Peter O'Toole. Goss is repped by Insomnia Media
Group and David Woods in the U.K.
It appears that Guillermo del Toro has his hands full with upcoming new projects.
According to Variety one of his new projects HELLBOY 2 is being put aside. Well actually
Sony has bowed out of their deal to produce and release the movie under their Revolution
label. Luckily other majors labels will be reviewing the project so we wont lose any hope in
seeing the wonderful Ron Perlman back as the monster fighting demon.
Hellboy 2 now has a subtitle and will be called Hellboy 2: The Golden Army. Director
Guillermo del Toro spoke with Sci-Fi wire about the new film and what we can expect from
some of the old characters-
"Ron took a few liberties with the facts concerning the project," del Toro wrote. "Mike
and I wrote the screen story together, and I wrote the script. But it is NOT based on
anything yet published, but Mike felt it had a lot of elements he has been keen to explore
in the future of HB."
Del toro also noted that there will be more of a pivotal role for Abe Sapien, the amphibious
character from the first movie-
"One bit of good news or all Abe fans," del Toro said. "Abe has a really dramatic role in
this new story."
