During a recent press conference for Festival International du Film Fantastique de Gérardmer 2012, Ron Perlman let drop that Hellboy 3 probably isn’t ever going to happen. Which kind of makes sense.
The Hellboy films are great, but they’re not enormous moneymakers (nor are they flops, they’re just not sure things). And Guillermo Del Toro’s dance card is extremely full of projects after he finishes Pacific Rim. The odds for the money and a willing studio being in place during the brief window of time Del Toro may have to make the film (whenever that may be) are kind of low.
Or, in the words of Perlman, “If I had to bet, I would bet there will be no Hellboy 3… It would be a great shame if we never did it… It’s kind of like Dorothy in ‘The Wizard Of Oz’, we close our eyes and click our heels [in the hopes it will come together].”
Hit the jump for video from the press conference, where he also discusses his willingness to be on “Game Of Thrones” – not that he necessarily will be.
