How did your relationship change on this movie?
The first movie was him adapting my work. Really, this one is taking my characters and putting them in a pure Del Toro world. I was a lot more willing to argue on the first movie, to defend my story and my ideas. But then everything I argued against ended up being the parts of the movie everyone liked the best.
Um … almost everything that involved emotion? I would be like, "Hellboy can't say that!" But then it worked. So on this movie, I just said, "You clearly know what you're doing."
“The movie has no profanity, no nudity, no gore, no graphic violence, so we thought we were gonna get a PG-13, and we got an R,” he says in the interview. “And we said, ‘What can we do? Why are you doing it?’ And they said, ‘No matter what you do, the movie will always get an R, because it’s too scary.’ It deals with primal childhood fears in a really strong way.”
