Moviehole has some quotes from creator Todd McFarlane regarding work on a second cinematic adventure for his brimstone-powered protagonist. “In a perfect world, I’d like to put it out next year” the Image founder said, “I’m in the middle of writing it now. It depends how many times I go over the script. I might be quite pleased with it and get some notes from people I trust, but my guess is I’m probably gonna grind this thing over three or four or five times. I’d love to do production in the first half of the year and that means I could get it out in time Halloween of next year. It shouldn’t be a long shoot. It’s not an overly complicated story. It’s fairly contained. Why? I don’t have a big budget. I’ve got to keep the story consistent with the budget. I think we could shoot this thing in two months.”
