Hellboy 2 – The Golden Army, lining up for summer 2008


Hellboy 2 – The Golden Army is lining up for a July 2008 release, with all the major players back on board. Hellboy was one of the classier comic book to movie adaptations, thanks go to ace director Guillermo del Toro, who has one of the most artistic movie making styles out there at the moment. Following up on the success of Pans Labyrinth, Del Toro was able to get the hot coals burning under Hellboy 2 faster than expected, with serious talks about making a trilogy out of Mike Mingola’s blood red Hellboy character.

All the cast are back with the super cute Selma Blair reprising her role as Liz Sherman, Jeffrey Tambor and Doug Jones are reprising their respective roles of Tom Manning and Abe Sapien. And of course, Ron Perlman is back as the half demon himself, Hellboy. A role which is perfect for Perlman, regardless of whether he’s one of Del Toro’s favorite actors or not.
