    Guillermo del Toro has announced he is leaving The Hobbit due to the uncertain situation with MGM.  As most of you are aware, MGM is up for sale, and until the sale is resolved, no start date can be set for The Hobbit.  This situation has pushed the original start date back from this summer to who knows when.  Also, even though Peter Jackson, Philippa Boyens, Fran Walsh and Guillermo del Toro have turned in screenplays and have tons of details worked out for the production, they are stuck playing a waiting game until the sale goes through. As a huge fan of Guillermo del Toro, I could not be more disappointed to hear this news.  But there is a silver lining, as del Toro has a ton of other projects in development and his release from The Hobbit means he'll be able to move quickly onto something else. For more on The Hobbit - including statements from del Toro and Peter Jackson, hit the jump: The news of del Toro leaving The Hobbit comes from theonering.net and they got some quotes from the filmmakers.  Here is what del Toro said and further down is Peter Jackson: "In light of ongoing delays in the setting of a start date for filming “The Hobbit,” I am faced with the hardest decision of my life. After nearly two years of living, breathing and designing a world as rich as Tolkien’s Middle Earth, I must, with great regret, take leave from helming these wonderful pictures. I remain ...

    When Guillermo del Toro dropped out of directing The Hobbit, many people were understandable disappointed.  After all, getting GDT behind the camera for The Hobbit seemed like a match made in heaven, and it seemed like everyone in cyberspace was in universal agreement.  Which is rare. Since he dropped out, many have been guessing what he might do next.  We reported a rumor he might do Van Helsing at Universal.  With the online chatter, del Toro even responded to the rumors, saying he's only in talks for the project.  So the big question is...what is he going to direct next?  According to del Toro, we aren't going to have to wait much longer to find out as he just announced he will tell everyone at Comic-Con next month!  Hit the jump for more. On del Toro's official site Deltorofilms he wrote: Van Helsing (writing and producing) is still in talks and not quite certain. Even then, I would like to share my plans only at COMICON. I am taking it slowly and marking very, very carefully the calendar of projects that I will be involved as producer, writer, etc I will not announce the project I intend to direct until then . I am very happy to say that all the projects and partnerships being considered are both quite surprising and, I hope, powerful. Much as I want, I cannot say much more at this time but I anxiously await to share these with you. I will be shopping on the floor in ...

    If you're a fan of Guillermo del Toro, today is Christmas.  That's because at tonight's Saturn Awards, del Toro surprised everyone by attending the ceremony and answering a ton of questions backstage in the press room.  While most of us would have been happy to speak to him for 5 minutes, he continued talking to us for over 20 minutes!!  We literally got so much info out of him that we stopped asking questions.  I know it's hard to believe, but after watching the interview, you'll see we covered everything you could think to ask him. During the 20 or so minutes we talked about The Hobbit, Hellboy 3, Frankenstein, Saturn and the End of Days, Death The High Cost of Living, Comic-Con, At the Mountains of Madness, his "Man Cave (his second house where he keeps all his collectibles) and so much more.  Trust me, if you're a fan of GDT, this is a must watch interview.  And to make it easy, I've time indexed everything we talked about and listed some of the highlights after the jump. Oh, and one thing he told me off camera...Criterion is going to release a Blu-ray of Cronos in December and it's going to include a 15 minute documentary on his Man Cave! Since some of you might not have the time to watch...here's some highlights. Wants to be shooting something in May of next year At the Mountains of Madness is probably not going to happen due to many reasons (he explains in interview) Hellboy 3 would ...

A mainstay in director Guillermo del Toro’s films, Jones is best known for his work playing non-human characters, usually in heavy makeup.

    After years in pre-production, including a well respected but unproduced John Milius draft, Conan The Barbarian returns to theaters this Friday with Marcus Nispel directing Game of Thrones’ Jason Momoa, as the titular warrior. Rose McGowan, Ron Perlman, Rachel Nichols and Stephen Lang round out the cast of this 3D bloodbath. Hemming closer to the fantastical Robert E. Howard books, this new Conan is stripped down and vicious. Recently, I sat down with Ron Perlman and up and coming tough guy/Disney kid Leo Howard to discuss their roles in the film. During the interview, we talked about playing an action hero, Howard’s impressive stunt work, the film’s complex scripting process and Perlman even teases us with plot threads for Hellboy 3.  Hit the jump to watch. Finally, if you missed my interviews with Jason Momoa, Rose McGowan or Rachel Nichols, just click the links.

    Even though it will probably never happen, but Guillermo Del Toro and Ron Perlman would still like to make Hellboy 3 a reality.  Previously, Del Toro had seemed resigned to the fact that because the first two movies had failed to light up the box office, a studio probably wouldn't be interested in paying for a third one.  However, when asked at Comic-Con about bringing Big Red back to the big-screen, Del Toro responded, "I can say publicly that now [Perlman and I] are together in trying [to do Hellboy 3]." Hit the jump for more, and click here to see Perlman be awesome by putting the Hellboy make-up back-on for the Make-a-Wish Foundation. Speaking to EW, Perlman followed-up Del Toro's statement by explaining: "The [first] two movies were really set up to have this unbelievable resolve," said Perlman. "Everything that was done in both movies was leading up to this destiny, written in stone, of what Hellboy has been summoned to Earth to do. To not do it, particularly in light of the scope that Guillermo is thinking of for the resolve, would be in my mind a little bit of a shame." Hellboy II: The Golden Army definitely has a great set-up with Liz (Selma Blair) willing to sacrifice the world if it means saving Hellboy's life.  I would love to see where that story concludes.  However, as I said in the intro, a conclusion seems unlikely.  The only way I can see it happening on the scale Del Toro is likely ...

    Falling Skies has returned for its third season, as the epic battle between humans and aliens continues.  Seven months have passed since viewers last saw the survivors of the 2nd Mass, led by Tom Mason (Noah Wyle), and now that they’ve teamed up with Volm and a band of rebel Skitters, the human race looks like it just might have some hope.  Executive produced by Steven Spielberg, the show also stars Moon Bloodgood, Will Patton, Drew Roy, Connor Jessup, Maxim Knight, Sarah Carter, Colin Cunningham and Seychelle Gabriel, along with Doug Jones, Gloria Reuben and Robert Sean Leonard. While at the show’s press day, actor Doug Jones spoke to Collider at both a roundtable and a 1-on-1 interview about how he came to be playing Volm leader Cochise, his desire to make every otherworldly creature he portrays different from the last, the two-hour make-up process, the most surprising thing about bringing Cochise to life, and whether the humans should be suspicious of the Volm’s motives.  He also talked about how he started out as a mime, that he originally thought he would be a sitcom star, the 27 commercials he did as the crescent moon-headed Mac Tonight character for McDonald’s, the creature he’s most proud of, and his hope that there will be a Hellboy 3.  Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers. Question:  How did you come to be playing Cochise? DOUG JONES:  I got a Facebook message from Todd Masters.  ...

    Fan enthusiasm for a third Hellboy movie from director Guillermo del Toro has ceased to wane in the years since the 2008 release of Hellboy II: The Golden Army, but movement on the sequel has thus far failed to materialize.  Del Toro has become a (deservingly) beloved director in the filmmaking community over the years, and he has proven adept at telling engrossing stories through his own unique eye, leading to some rather high-profile gigs.  The director has finally been handed the reins to a giant studio tentpole with this summer’s Pacific Rim, and he’s already lined up a ghost story called Crimson Peak as his follow-up film.  Nevertheless, the looming question of when/if Hellboy 3 will come to fruition remains. Steve recently caught up with del Toro for an exclusive, extended interview at his house in anticipation of Friday’s release of Pacific Rim, and the filmmaker offered a rather disappointing update on Hellboy 3.  Del Toro admitted that the sequel is unlikely to ever get made due to the vast number of things that need to converge at once in order to make it viable.  The filmmaker also talked about why his story for Hellboy 3 can’t exist in comic form, the scale of the proposed follow-up, and more. Del Toro has said for years that he already has the story for Hellboy 3 laid out, but Hellboy 2’s global box office take of $160 million against an $85 million budget wasn’t enough to warrant an even larger budget for a ...

    Hellboy 3 is one of those projects that Guillermo del Toro fans just can’t let go of.  I don’t blame them.  To me, it’s an interesting property that is in many ways perfect for the filmmaker and I think he was just really finding his way into what the big screen version of it wanted to be (which is to say I think Hellboy 2 was at least twice as good as the original film).  But it doesn’t look like it’s in the cards. It's an unfortunate status he’s hinted at for a while, that he feels there just wasn't enough interest to justify the $150 million price tag the film would require. Steve did an epic interview with del Toro earlier in the week that covered stuff like the Pacific Rim Animated Series,  At the Mountains of Madness, Crimson Peak and The Strain along with his new Black and White movie.  But today del Toro gave a taste of what Hellboy 3 might have been, despite that fact that it will (probably) never be. Hit the jump for more. Del Toro divulged the following during a Reddit AMA session: "Well, you know, we don't have that movie on the horizon, but the idea for it was to have Hellboy finally come to terms with the fact that his destiny, his inevitable destiny, is to become the beast of the Apocalypse, and having him and Liz face the sort of, that part of his nature, and he has to do it, in order to be able to ironically ...

    Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is a Comic-Con favorite.  Films like Hellboy and Pacific Rim went over extremely well at the massive convention in the past, and he’s also just an incredibly likeable guy—he loves movies, monsters, and has no filter when it comes to speaking on the Comic-Con stage.  However, at this year’s Legendary panel in Hall H, del Toro brought a very different kind of film that just may end up being a highlight of his oeuvre.  With the gothic romance horror pic Crimson Peak—which stars Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Tom Hiddleston, and Charlie Hunnam—del Toro is aiming to meld the artful and more adult-geared tone of his Spanish-language films (Pan’s Labyrinth, The Devil’s Backbone) with the colorful and pop nature of his English-language features. During the film’s Comic-Con panel, del Toro unveiled the first incredibly promising (not to mention gorgeous) footage from the pic and talked about his approach on this feature.  Additionally, del Toro took the opportunity to do an unofficial poll of the audience as to their interest in seeing Hellboy 3 and At the Mountains of Madness.  Read my full Crimson Peak Comic-Con panel recap after the jump. Panel Highlights On making a return to the horror genre, del Toro said he wanted to make a movie that blended two sides of his filmmaking sensibilities: his big, fun English movies and his smaller, more artful Spanish-language films. Del Toro was initially only going to produce Crimson Peak, but when the studio said he could do it R-rated, violent, and ...

    The “what if’s” of the movie world are unendingly fascinating when it comes to films that never got made.  Some came very close to fruition, while others never even had a chance.  The “Sequel” art exhibit in Los Angeles puts a spin on “what if’s” as 40 artists imagine movie sequels that were never made, and today we have two exclusive pieces from the exhibit to debut: posters for Sleepy Hollow 2 and Hellboy 3.  They’re incredibly well-made, and they serve as a fun teaser of what might have been if these films had come to fruition.  While a sequel to Tim Burton’s swell Sleepy Hollow wasn’t really in the cards, Guillermo del Toro has very much tried to get a third Hellboy movie off the ground.  Though this poster has nothing to do with del Toro’s intended vision, it’s a neat piece of artwork regardless. Check out the posters for Sleepy Hollow 2 and Hellboy 3 after the jump, along with other posters from the exhibit including Fight Club 2, Blade Runner 2, The Rocketeer 2, and more.  The “Sequel” art exhibit will be held at Iam8bit in Los Angeles on Thursday, November 13th from 7pm-11pm PST. Check out the official Facebook page for the event to learn more. [gallery link="file" columns="1" ids="370258,370259,370261,370267,370264,370262,370265,370266,370260"]

    Back in November I got the opportunity to catch up with Guillermo del Toro and he told me that two of the main characters in Pacific Rim 2 are Geiszler (Charlie Day) and Gottlieb (Burn Gorman). Shortly after the Television Critics Association panel for The Strain, Haleigh was part of a group of journalists who got to talk to del Toro and ask for specifics regarding Day and Gorman's roles in the film. Here's what he told them when asked if they're taking charge in the sequel instead of Charlie Hunnam's Raleigh Becket: “No, no, no, …

    The prospect of a third Hellboy movie has been “in the ether” pretty much ever since Hellboy II: The Golden Army hit theaters. That sequel concluded in such a way as to set up a third and final film in the comic-book trilogy, and director Guillermo del Toro has been high on the idea for years. But while the Hellboy movies were successful, their performance exists in the grey zone where greenlighting a third film isn’t necessarily an easy decision. The first Hellboy only made $99 million worldwide but performed extremely well on DVD, leading to The Golden …

    Well the optimism was fun while it lasted. A few weeks ago, Guillermo del Toro took to Twitter to gauge interest in Hellboy 3, the third film in his comic book franchise that began with his 2004 film and continued with the fantastical and haunting Hellboy II: The Golden Army in 2008. After reaching 100,000 votes on Twitter, del Toro agreed to arrange a sit-down with star Ron Perlman and comic creator Mike Mingola to discuss a potential Hellboy 3. Well it appears that meeting happened, and the outcome is not exactly what fans expected. Earlier today, del …
