Del Toro Talks "Hellboy 2" and Other New Projects

by | April 10, 2007 | Comments

Genre master Guillermo del Toro is presently in Budapest, hard at work on pre-production for "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army," but in a recent interview he let us know that this sequel will have a lot of themes in common with "Pan’s Labyrinth."

Guillermo even scared "Hellboy" creator Mike Mignola with his new ideas: "Mike was quite horrified by how much I had deviated from what we had talked about, especially at some of the quote, unquote whimsical elements, the parts about magic and the fairy world. But then fortunately, he saw Pan’s Labyrinth … and he realised that the two movies would have some parallels."

The filmmaker isn’t interested in delivering any spoilers on "Hellboy 2" — or on his next project, which (of course) will be a smaller, Spanish-language film. The untitled project comes from screenwriter Sergio Sanchez, and it’ll be somewhat of a companion piece to "The Devil’s Backbone" and "Pan."

"For me this will be the hardest of the three …for reasons that I can’t explain because it will tell you too much about it," is what the hard-working movie maniac had to say. (And doesn’t this guy ever take a vacation??)
