Man, I really can’t wait to see what del Toro is able to do with Hellboy: The Golden Army. The simple promises he’s made about it, his happiness with his new studio (Universal) and the basic elements of the film all indicate something that will be a truly great film. Not that you’d expect less from the man.
Today he posted a ton of badass casting news in the message boards over on his official fansite, Del Toro Films, confirming many things including: John Hurt (Professor Buttenholm) will return for a cameo, Doug Jones will play four different characters (Abe Sapien, The Chamberlain, The Angel of Death and a wizard) as will Brian Steele (who was behind Sammael in the first Hellboy as well as many other creatures) and yes, Luke Goss will be playing Prince Nuada.
That’s not all of it, just the best bits, so be sure to click on the link above to see the rest, including a bit of history on each actor del Toro makes mention of. Cameras roll on Hellboy: The Golden Army this Friday!
Wish you could play a monster for Guillermo in our forums!
