Del Toro Announces ‘Helllboy’ Video Game!!

Guillermo del Toro is reuniting with Hellboy. The director of the 2004 feature will work with the creator of the comic book to develop an original video game based on the big, red, paranormal hero, according to the Hollywood Reporter. Konami America chief operating officer Geoff Mulligan made the announcement Tuesday in connection with the video gaming conference Electronic Entertainment Expo unfolding at the Los Angeles Convention Center this week. Del Toro will collaborate on the “Hellboy” game with the comic’s creator, Mike Mignola. An avid gamer, Del Toro said in an interview before Tuesday’s announcement that he loves working in video games because there are no limits to the imagination. “There’s a very nice atmosphere with games, sort of Hollywood the way God intended it, really,” del Toro said. The action game will be released in 2007 and puts players in control of Hellboy, who comes armed with all of his familiar characteristics like the Right Hand of Doom.
