Selma Blair stars in In Their Skin (formerly Replicas), a thriller I really enjoyed which you can currently find on VOD/On Demand. I just got off the phone with her, and while the bulk of our conversation is centered around that film (a conversation you’ll be able to read in its entirety before the film’s theatrical run on November 9th), we did speak briefly about a certain sequel many of us are dying to see happen.
So I figured I’d share this Hellboy 3 tidbit with you in the meantime before the full interview goes up. First of all, it seems like something she’s really passionate about. I didn’t even have to bring it up and I get the sense that it’s not just another job for her – it’s a role she’s invested in and an arc she wants to complete.
Head inside for what she had to say.
“It’s my dream to work with Guillermo del Toro again. I just want to be near him. I love him. I miss him. It’s my dream that one day when I’m done with the TV Show [Anger Management] they say, ‘ok the movie’s actually going to go!’ That would be the biggest heaven.”
We all remember the “pregnant” cliffhanger from Hellboy 2, right? She’s just as curious to see what happens. “I mean it’s all set up. ‘Hellboy 3’ is the biggest payoff and the biggest horror. I want to see what these twins are up to, if one’s the devil and one’s an angel. I want to see what Hellboy and Liz are up to! I know the film is the apocalypse and the apocalypse isn’t cheap to shoot so we have to find some funding and get going with it!”
I’m down for a Hellboy apocalypse. You?
