HELLBOY MOVIE UPDATE

Guillermo del Toro, director of the Hellboy movie, said he wanted to represent the look of Mike Mignola's comic in terms of the color palette for the film.

"I prepared a document with frames from Mike's comic and color-coded what colors went into his comic," del Toro said last weekend at Wizard World Texas. "And we basically said, 'That's the color palette of this movie.'"

Del Toro, whose last movie was Blade II, said that the nights have a gold look to them.

"It was something I tried on Blade and I liked," he said. "The rest of the palette of the sets, the clothes and all that is coded to the comic to make the red pop out. Because there's only one guy that is red.

"One of the stark, beautiful things in the comics is that when you have a blue panel with blues and greens and then there's Hellboy."

Although del Toro said it's difficult to replicate the look in 3D, Mignola said he was successful.

"When you see Hellboy walking through a completely snowed-in cemetery and then there's a red guy," said Mignola, nodding.

Del Toro said that color correction will be important.

"Red is the wildest color," he said. "Hellboy and go Irish pink and it can go orange. And you have to have it consistently be red. And that's really hard. The skin tone for this movie is really hard."
