    The film isn't fully green-lit as yet, BUT ... with the script now with the studios and budgeting being sorted out, it is hoped that the film will go into full pre-production this summer, if all goes according to plan.

    And yes, Ron is signed for the sequel (As far as I know, he is the only one signed so far). Once the film gets the go-ahead, I have no doubt Selma, Doug and Jeffrey will return in their respective roles.

    Its not confirmed yet because Revolution Studio's, the guys who own the rights and produced the first movie are going through some financial difficulties. There is a slight possibility that there wont be a sequel, but there is more of a chance that we will get a sequel.

    SCI FI Wire spoke with Hellboy star Ron Perlman, who revealed the sequel's working title is Hellboy 2: The Golden Army:

    "I think that that's an invention based on a number of different things that have appeared in other comic books," Perlman said of the title in an interview while promoting the upcoming television miniseries Stephen King's Desperation.""But basically the idea for [Hellboy 2] was something that was hatched by [Hellboy comic-book creator] Mike Mignola, with [Hellboy writer-director] Guillermo [del Toro] sitting alongside of him. And then Guillermo, of course, did all of the writing. But, you know, the story was Mignola."


    Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro posted an update on the sequel on DelToroFilms.com yesterday:

    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.

    HBII: THE GOLDEN ARMY is currently being "put together" financially by Larry Gordon et al-

    HBII is still my number one priority and no one is contemplating my "stepping down" just yet. It is highly unlikely -albeit possible- that it would happen but that would require a series of unfortunate finacial, logistic, personal events that seem remote at best. More likely than not, if the project were to stall I would still be attached as writer/director.

    The timing for HBII seems right, what with the anime, game, comic book series, toys, etc. I believe that HB and the BPRD are -more than ever- in the public´s mind. One bit of good news or all Abe fans. Abe has a really dramatic role in this new story...

    Doug Jones who portrayed Abe Sapien in Hellboy has been busy as of late. With a role in Sony's upcoming Benchwarmers and also a lead role in Guillermo Del Toro's Pan's Labyrinth, Doug continues to take character acting to the next level.

    So will Abe Sapien have a bigger role in Hellboy 2? That is exactly what we wanted to know and we had the chance to ask Doug Jones at the Masters of Horror 2 launch party that was held at the Ivar Club in Hollywood , California.

    Doug reveals that while shooting Pan's Labyrinth in Spain , Del Toro stated that Abe will indeed have more screen time and that this time he gets a chance to fight some baddies. He admits that he has not yet read the script but that Guillermo promises that Abe will be on an equal playing level with Hellboy.

    Doug throws out a cautionary quip regarding Abe. Guillermo told him fans may be angry with what he plans to do to our favorite amphibian although Doug says he has no idea what that might be. He quickly asked Del Toro if he planned on Hellboy 3. Guillermo said yes. Jones said good, he just wanted to make sure.

    Guillermo said last week that he hopes to have good news for us on the sequel very soon. He will be at the Fangoria's Weekend of Horrors con on June 2nd-4th (probably the Saturday) in Burbank, where he will be doing a presentation and a Q & A regarding his latest film PAN'S LABYRINTH - and Doug might well be with him. Knowing GdT, there may be something said then, who knows? And he'll also be at the San Diego Comic Con in July. Plenty of ops for more HB2 goodness.

    Still just 2007, as far as I know, nothing more specific than that - and if pre-production doesn't start until early summer (and that's being optimistic), I can't see this film hitting cinemas until late 2007. HELLBOY took about 2 years to go from pre-production to premiere (green-lit March 2002, hit cinemas April 2004). But maybe a lot of the groundwork regarding principal character design (HB, Abe & Liz) has already been done for the first film and only needs tweaking, so that may save a little time. Who knows?

    Well Sony dropped it so, that's the end of that.

    Tosh and balderdash. The budgeting package for the film has been ongoing for a while now, as Sony was unlikely to want to bear the whole cost for the film when Revolution parted company with them and subsequently crashed.

    The script was shown to other major production companies (which was done some time ago, incidentally, so this is pretty old news) with a view to this budgeting package being put together and the film being a co-production.

    Guillermo said only just a couple of weeks ago that we should hear some good news soon, and I have no reason not to believe him.

    I think there is as much chance for a sequel for this as there is for the Punisher. A pity as both are good shows...

    Both will likely happen. Probably HB2 before Punisher as Marvel has plenty of movies in the works and is in no hurry to do a sequel to a poorly received adaptation.

    There's no Punisher sequel in sight. And it seems the same way for Hellboy 2.

    Let's face it guys, its not like there's a huge demand for a sequel to this movie.

    I'm sick of this ****, this is exactly what happened with Hulk and we are only just getting news about a sequel to that movie now. We really are in need of some BIG news soon.

    There doesn't have to be a huge demand, but yes, there is a demand, more than enough for a sequel, whether it's with Sony or not.

    We may not get it for a while, but it'll get made sooner or later.

    I'll be happy with any studio except Fox i hate them after the way X3 turned out. But, i'm suspecting that if we dont get any news within the next 3 months, we can kiss goodbye to HB2 for a while.
