Guillermo del Toro on Hellboy 2

Time Out caught up with Hellboy 2: The Golden Army director Guillermo del Toro, who gave a quick update on the sequel:

First up is ‘Hellboy 2′, which is due to go into production early next year. ‘It will shoot in Hungary and the idea is to make a movie that is more fun, more loose and more spectacular than the original,’ he explained. ‘We all learned our lessons doing the first one and we want to put them to work on the second one. Mike Mignola and I have come up with the story and it’s a little closer to the comic books than the first one was.’

The movie is expected to hit theaters in 2008.
