Hellboy’s Official Site Launched
February 6th, 2003
Filming has just begun on Hellboy, one of the many comic book adaptations coming soon. However, its official site is already open. Hellboy is the story of the results of secret Nazi experimentation into the occult. Although the Nazi goal to open the gates of hell failed, one spawn of hell did come forth in the form of a boy: Hellboy. Destined to destroy mankind, he fights against that destiny while protecting the world from the same supernatural threats that spawned him.
Based on a comic by Mike Mignola, Hellboy was written and directed by Guillermo del Toro, who is no stranger to horor or comic book adaptation. He last directed Blade II and also wrote and directed the horror movies Mimic and Cronos. Next up for Guillermo del Toro is either the latest sequel to Blade or an adaptation of H.P.Lovecraft’s short story At the Mountains of Madness.
Hellboy is scheduled for a Summer 2004 release and stars Ron Perlman.
