When Revolution and Sony dropped out on the "Hellboy" sequel, things looked pretty grim. But now comes Universal to the rescue! They’ll be releasing Guillermo del Toro‘s "Hellboy 2" in the summer of 2008. And yes, Ron Perlman is coming back.
According to Variety, "In a script by del Toro, Ron Perlman returns as Hellboy, the humanoid creature born in the flames of hell who was deposited on Earth’s doorstep as an infant and battles otherworldly evil for a covert government agency. Selma Blair returns as the horned hero’s pyrokinetic love interest."

Good ol’ Universal. First they rescue "Firefly," and now they give "Hellboy" new life. Very cool.
