During an interview with MTV Guillermo del Toro has given his blessing for B.P.R.D. spin-off film. The interesting part is that it would feature a new director. Considering he's going to be busy for three years with two Hobbit films. He understands that Hellboy fans like myself are anxiously waiting for another movie. The idea is to have a B.P.R.D. film that could or could not feature Hellboy. At the end of Hellboy 2 the group quits so it would make sense that there would be replacements. I could see this movie setting up and introducing the unused members of B.P.R.D. for the third/last Hellboy movie.
Mike Mignola is someone I think might be replacing del Toro. Although there are many directors del Toro has worked with over the years. They include Vincenzo Natali (Splice), Juan Antonio Bayona (Orphanage), Alejandro González Iñárritu (21 Grams) and Alfonso Cuarón (Children Of Men). All of which would easily expand the Mignola universe.
My personal choice would be to see Swedish director Tomas Alfredson take on the project. Let The Right One In was the greatest horror film of 2008 and a horror background would be needed.
