"An executive said to me, 'What about a regular actor who gets angry and turns into Hellboy?'" said del Toro, wrinkling his face in disgust. "I go, 'That's … not … very good.'"
"Then they would say, 'What if you call him Hellboy and he comes from Hell and all that, but he looks like a guy?' Then they would suggest things like, 'Can he have a Hellmobile?' 'Can he have a dog? A pet dog that comes from hell and is red?'"
I just wish UK cinemagoers weren't going to have to wait until September to see for ourselves whether del Toro & Co have pulled it off.
