Granted, the premise of this film sounds absolutely ridiculous, but one must admit that it also sounds like it’ll be a lot of fun. The good folks over at FilmForce have reported the following:
In other Hellboy news, writer-director Guillermo Del Toro recently
posted a message on the site’s message board announcing that actor David Hyde-Pierce (Frasier) will be voicing merman Abe Sapien in the film.
In the comic-turned-film, Hellboy is a demon who was conjured up by Nazis using black magic during the last days of World War II. As he reached maturity, Hellboy chose good over evil and became an investigator for the Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense, going up against werewolves, vampires and other strange monsters.
The film also stars Selma Blair as Liz Sherman, Hellboy’s love interest.
The Revolution Studios project arrives in theaters on April 2, 2004 from Columbia Pictures.
