Moviehole shared this bit from an upcoming interview with writer/director Guillermo del Toro. He mentions Hellboy 2, Blade Trinity, and more….
del Toro on a “Hellboy: Directors Cut”
I cut out things that I thought were slowing the pace of the movie, but I’ve put them back into what I call the ‘Directors Cut’, which will be released in France and possibly Japan, theatrically. It’s a more sedate thing, but it adds a more interesting direction for the characters. A little more weight for the bad guys too. Which I think is very good for the movie.
del Toro on “Hellboy 2”
I start writing it in the Fall and then it’ll depend on how fast we get a script we’re all happy about and how fast we can work out a budget and a date. It’s in the future, but I wouldn’t put a date on it. In the next Hellboy adventure he’ll (Hyde-Pierce’s Abe Sapien) have a more prominent role. She’ll be back (Blair). Jeffrey Tambor will be back. We will have a good class of weirdos around.
On “Hellboy” star Selma Blair being linked to “Superman”
She would be just great for it. She would be a blessing to the movie.
On David Goyer’s “Blade: Trinity”
I’ve seen the whole movie and I enjoyed the hell out of it. The thing I love the most about it is that its different, each of the Blade movies has been different to the others. [Director, David] Goyer has a very sardonic, very brutal sense of humour and it’s a different movie. I think it’s going to be quite a trip for the audience.
On a possible return to the “Blade” franchise
I would love to go back and do a fourth ballistic Blade â€“ vampires all over the world â€“ but who the hell knows.
Stay tuned for the full interview at the site soon.
