MTV chatted with Guillermo del Toro about Hellboy 2: The Golden Army:
“We are literally in the early stages of preproduction,” del Toro said of his sequel to the 2004 flick starring the monstrous Ron Perlman. “We’ve been designing the thing, and we are going to be shooting in April or May of next year. It’s a bigger story than the first one, and it is actually a larger scope. It’s similar to [del Toro's upcoming flick] ‘Pan’s Labyrinth’ in the fact that the everyday world is grinding fantasy into the ground. Everyday life is creating a mundane reality and destroying fantasy. All of the main characters are coming back.” Del Toro expects the sequel to hit theaters in 2008.
