Guillermo Del Toro Talks ‘Pacific Rim’ And ‘Hellboy 3’

We all know Guillermo Del Toro is an insanely busy guy. When I caught up with him last night on the red carpet for the Eyegore Awards (which kicked off this year’s Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood), it was no exception. He was being hounded by everybody. But I did get a few tidbits on the upcoming Pacific Rim and a small update on Hellboy 3

Regarding Pacific Rim, he said that despite the big-budget he’s had an extraordinary amount of freedom. “It’s gonna be great! I’m 48 years old and this is the best experience I’ve ever had making a movie! In spite of my age I feel like a 12 year old when I go to the sets. It’s going to be a fun, fun, fun experience.

And Hellboy 3. The eternal question. “We’re trying! We try and we try and we try. It’s an expensive proposition and it’s not easy!” Yeesh! Given that Del Toro has an insanely full dance card and the uphill battle that Hellboy 3 seems to be, I’d say it’s possible but not likely to happen anytime soon. Maybe after Pacific Rim (if it goes bonkers at the box office and Del Toro can find a spare year to work on it).

This year’s Halloween Horror Nights dates are September 21, 22, 28, 29 and October 5, 6, 7, 12, 13, 14, 18, 19, 20, 21, 25, 26, 27, 28 and 31.



  • See, it really shouldn’t be a choice. Hellboy 2 ended with some serious stuff. The prophecy of the blind demon, the birth of twins, the departure from the Agency… there is a lot that is left wide open in Del Toro’s HB universe. And I for one would love to see it resolved.

    HB2 was a classic imo. It was pure awesomeness. I really would like to see part 3 to end the saga. Del Toro is one of the few out there with a personal style. Also, a film that has Ron Perlman in the lead role, is always good. The guy is a badass and a brilliant actor!

    i’m always amazed by the amount of love the HB films get – i thought they were both a bit rubbish, particularly compared to the really rather fantastic comics
