Guillermo del Toro Continues Hellboy Updates

Hellboy director Guillermo del Toro has provided another update on the movie on the film’s official website. Here’s some of the highlights…

3) (Just a personal one) Did the studio allow you to change the Columbia logo? For example Hellboy hand instead of the torch :-) (Hmm, I don’t even know if you were serious about it, when you talked to Smoker in Prague about the Coolumbia poster. And I don’t even know if you remember :-)

-LOL- I DO remember although both Smoker and I had a beer or two in the system… I wouldn’t do anything to harm the Columbia lady, seriously-

8) whats up with the feet?? no hoof feet eh?

Yes… there will be visible in one scene, but he hides them /protects them with boots. Wouldn’t you??? After all he SHAVES his horns…

11) – have you talked to Mr. H-P about this role any? Did he take some convincing?

He ALREADY did the VOICE sesssion for the movie. He was delighted with the script and the character and wanted to meet the writer. I informed him it was me, the chubby Mexicano. He was quite in love with the character. After screening all his scenes he left a very happy man. I-being a super fan of Frasier- was 100% geeked-out and kept pinching myself -doing that made me realize how much body fat I have…

13) Do you have any idea where the hellboy action figures will be sold as far as big retailers? I know comic stores will have them but how about stores like Gamestop?

We are dealing with all the major chains, so I would say, much everywhere…

19) What specific portion of the fx work is being handled by Tippett Studios? I’m assuming the creature effects (Behemoth etc) — how’s their work on this so far?

TIPPET is handling about 50% of the VFX, the second biggest vendor is ORPHANAGE, out of the bay area. Love ‘em. Brilliant guys. The work, so far, is top-notch. Sammael and Behemoth are in Tippets hand, while the Ogdru Jahad is in Orphanage’s. Also along for the ride are HIMANAI, EDEN, PIT CREW and others. I really enjoy working with these guys…
