Blair Turns Up the Heat in Hellboy

By Beth Hannan Rimmels

Selma Blair will star opposite Ron Perlman in Revolution Studios' film adaptation of Dark Horse Comics' Hellboy for writer/director Guillermo Del Toro. Filming begins in March 2003 in Prague, Czechoslovakia.  Hellboy (Perlman) is a red-faced hero born in the flames of hell and brought to the world through a ritual. Saved by his friend and mentor, Dr. Broom, Hellboy was raised in the doctor's Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense alongside other characters, including a merman named Abe Sapien; Liz Sherman (Blair), a woman who can psychically control fire; and Myers, an FBI agent who is Hellboy's rival for Liz's affections. The heroes work together, using their powers to help people, despite the blessing and curse those powers bring.
