‘Hellboy’ Creator Says ‘Guillermo del Toro WON’T Direct ‘Hellboy 3′

While most of the geek planet celebrates the Hellboy franchise, I find both installment’s incredibly weak (although I prefer the second). Still, I welcome a third film with open arms in hopes that it’ll continually get better. While a Hellboy 3 has ben long in the back of Guillermo del Toro’s mind, comic book creator Mike Mignola tells Movieweb that the Mexican director wouldn’t direct if it were to ever go behind cameras.

Last I heard he said he would not make it,” Mignola told the site in regards to Del Toro. “Guillermo — who I love — in every interview there’s a new story on what his next movie is and he honestly believes he’s going to do all these things. But last I heard, he said ‘I’m never gonna get back to ‘Hellboy.’ I’m not surprised because he won’t live long enough to do a tenth of the movies he’s told me he’s going to make. I can’t imagine him making a ‘Hellboy 3.’ He’s very enthusiastic and says he’s going to do all these things….ummm….he’s cute [laughed].

Not to mention the forthcoming Pacific Rim, Del Toro has his name attached to 3993, Coffin, Deadman, Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Drood, The Haunted Mansion, Trollhunters, Witches and his own version of Frankenstein (weeeewwwwwwww *wipes forehead*). Will he direct a third Hellboy? When Hell freezes over…
