Meanwhile, del Toro is awaiting word on whether U[niversal] will embrace a follow-up to "Hellboy 2: The Golden Army." The big-budget film opened in the heat of summer and fell short of blockbuster status in the U.S. but has performed well overseas. "I think they'll decide when the last euro hits the piggybank," del Toro said. "We laid the groundwork to have a magnificent third act. I'd like to return to an action franchise with 60-year-old actor Ron Perlman, because he'll be scratching at that age when I get to it." Langley said the studio is interested and may work with del Toro to add a TV series and online segments to broaden the following before making the series finale.
