Revolution, Del Toro set ‘Hellboy II’

Scribe-helmer will develop sequel with creator Mignola

Hellboy’s coming back.

Revolution Studios is moving forward with plans for a sequel to “Hellboy,” based on the Dark Horse Entertainment comic about a demon who grows up to fight evil.

“Hellboy’s” writer-director Guillermo del Toro is developing the sequel with comic creator Mike Mignola, who was co-executive producer on the first film.

“Hellboy,” which starred Ron Perlman and Selma Blair, has generated $59 million since bowing April 2. Pic’s budget was $60 million.

Film has yet to roll out in Europe. It starts unspooling there in France in August. It’s also expected to perform well on DVD.

Producers Lawrence Gordon, Lloyd Levin and Dark Horse Entertainment’s Mike Richardson are returning to produce “Hellboy II.”

Revolution partner Todd Garner will shepherd the project at the studio.

” ‘Hellboy’ was a tremendously successful and unique project,” Garner said. “It was Guillermo’s vision that brought the film to the marketplace, and we are delighted to be working with him again.”

Revolution has yet to target a release date for “Hellboy II.”

Del Toro is likely to helm the indie “Pan’s Labyrinth” as his next project. He is also attached to direct the horror pic “At the Mountains of Madness” at DreamWorks.
