Ron Perlman Says ‘Hellboy 3′ Must Happen! But When?!

Hellboy_Banner_4_28_13

A few months back I spoke with Selma Blair who wasn’t shy about her desire to be in Hellboy 3 stating, “It’s my dream to work with Guillermo del Toro again… I mean [the story is] 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!

Now Ron Perlman is jumping in on the love, telling IGN, “We both walked away from Hellboy 2 agreeing that there would never be another one. But, with the passage of time, it became clear to me that he really always designed it as a trilogy. There are so many questions posed in the first two films that absolutely need to be answered. I said, ‘You owe it to the world to finish this trilogy.’ I’ve been giving him Jewish guilt… He’s just so busy, but I’m going to keep working away at the body. I’m pushing seventy so he better f*cking do this soon.

That’s true though. Del Toro is extremely busy. “The Strain”, Crimson Peak, “Monster”, a possible Pacific Rim 2, The Haunted Mansion, his passion project At The Mountains Of Magic… am I leaving any out? Yes, actually. And while Perlman at 63 isn’t exactly “pushing 70″ (and has shown little in the way of diminished physicality), you have to wonder if he won’t be “pushing 80″ by the time Del Toro gets around to making it. Of course there’s always the possibility that projects and schedules align, after all, we know Del Toro’s not even going to do all of the project listed above – he just likes a lot of irons in the fire.

What do you think? Will Hellboy 3 ever happen?

    Sure, I see how it is.. Ask about Hellboy 3, never “How was your day?” Or “would you like to go out tonight?” Evan, I’m sorry, but I’m gonna have to bring this up in our next comment counseling session. Hmmm, maybe we can roll play.

    Anyhoo, on Hellboy 3 ever happening I’ll say yes, eventually. But as in Guillermo del Toro writing or producing, maybe both and someone else directing.

    I’d be up for another, but personally while I loved the look and feel of the previous Hellboy movies I wasn’t really satisfied. Usually the ending just felt anticlimactic. So here’s hoping the 3rd, if it ever happens gets a better ending.

    As long as they change what is likely to be the conclusion. After that, I’m ready to see it today.

    ‘Hellboy 3′ does need to happen, it’s one of those movies where if they don’t do it now, when they finally do it, it’ll be too late, and someone else will end up being cast as Hellboy. I mean, Ron Perlman IS Hellboy, so would we really want that to happen? I don’t. I say, Ron Perlman as Hellboy in ‘Hellboy 3′ make it happen.

    I’d love another film. The first movie didn’t quite live up to my expectations, but the second film was fantastic (in the literal AND figurative sense). The higher-ups just need to give Guillermo whatever he wants to do whatever he wants to do.

    Remember when they were like ‘When are we getting a Robocop statue in Detroit? and Detroit was like Pfft, hahaha, yeah, you guys can have one when you pay for it out of pocket.’ So then they did, and according to every source keeping up with it, the statue’s near completion. What if something like that happened, ‘When will we see a Hellboy 3?’ ‘When you pay for it’ and generous fans come together with xxx amount of dollars to finance the film, you think they would do it?

    At the Mountains of Magic? …is seriously no one going to point that out?

    I wsn’t keen on the first, but I actually really enjoyed Hellboy 2 which was brilliant blockbuster fun. It really surprised me actually. I think a third would be a great idea, especially with the current popularity of superhero films.
