Guillermo Del Toro has ‘no hard feelings’ about ‘Hellboy’ reboot

Los Angeles [U.S.A.], June 14 : Filmmaker Guillermo De Toro feels that he does not own 'Hellboy' and hence, won't have any "hard feelings" if 'Hellboy' gets a reboot without him.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, the 52-year-old filmmaker, who was present at the Annecy Animation Festival shared that he was happy he got to make two [Hellboy] movies, which is more than he thought he would get to make.

Del Toro shared, "I don't own Hellboy, Mike [Mignola] does. So, you know, he is the father of the character and if he wants to reboot it, it's perfectly fine. I got to make two - that's two more than I thought I would get to make. So you know, as far as I'm concerned god speed and god bless." The 'Pacific Rim' helmer also noted that he passed on many big projects over creative vision.

"I've had the most incredible opportunities to say no to big movies," he said, with nothing keeping him "awake at night." Except Harry Potter, he added later.

Del Toro also noted that he is still interested in a 'Pinocchio' film project and if someone gives him money, he will do it "tomorrow." "I'm still looking at it.

If you have 45 million USD I'll do it tomorrow," he joked. 'Crimson Peak' director was at the festival to talk about his Netflix driven series 'Trollhunters' and his collaboration with the streaming giant.

He noted that his experience with the SVOD has been much more fulfilling than working with studios, adding, "When you have a partner that believes in you, any co-production - even your dentist uncle - it's amazing.

And what I can say is that in our experience, it has been absolutely great creatively. They put out the show we made. I've made movies that are sold as exactly the opposite of what they were. The show was sold beautifully as what it was and that's fantastic." On the work front, Del Toro's 'The Shape of Water' is set for a December 2017 release.
