HELLBOY 2 CONFIRMED
According to Variety, Revolution Studios is officially moving forward with plans for a sequel to Hellboy, the supernatural action adventure based on Mike Mignola's popular Dark Horse Comics series of the same name starring the titular monster-hunting red demon.
Hellboy's writer-director Guillermo del Toro (Blade II, The Devil's Backbone), currently at work at a smaller film entitled Pan's Labyrinth is developing the sequel with comic creator/writer/artist Mike Mignola, who was co-executive producer on the first film.
The first film, budgeted at $60 million, has generated $59 million since bowing April 2. It has yet to roll out in Europe and is expected to perform well on DVD as well. No release date for Hellboy 2 has been set.
