hellboy 3

Although it has only been eight years since the 2008 movie, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, talk of a third Hellboy continues to take fans on a roller-coaster ride of emotions as Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro wage an almost Ghostbuster 3 like campaign to get the movie into production. For years Ghostbuster fans, dying for a sequel, had to endure Bill Murray and Dan Akroyd‘s almost constantly comical, back and forth on whether a sequel would ever be made. In this latest round of Hellboy III On & Off Again Perlman is back on the negative side of the fence. (more…)

Another day, another quote about Hellboy 3. The final chapter of Guillermo del Toro‘s trilogy based on the comic book series by Mike Mignola, is on the must-have list of many movie fans, but finding the political/financial will to make it a reality has been something quite different. Still, that hasn’t stopped us from talking about, it hasn’t stopped movie journalists from asking about it, and it hasn’t stopped the primary players from the series from answering those questions. And so it goes, when Hellboy star Ron Perlman again appeared in front of reporters, he was naturally asked about Hellboy 3, and is answer offered some surprising insight. (more…)

It was with a lot of regret that fans got the news last week that Guillermo del Toro‘s vision for Justice League Dark would not be realized. A super-team made up of DC Comics‘ premier supernatural heroes seemed too inside del Toro’s wheelhouse for it not to happen, but sometimes these things are not meant to be, unlike Pacific Rim 2, which is currently in development and will be released in 2017 in theaters everywhere. Meanwhile, fans eagerly await the news that will assure even the remotest chance that Hellboy 3 might become a reality. But would it surprise you to know that these three projects are all connected in way beyond del Toro’s involvement? In fact, it’s the very epitome of the term “show business.” (more…)

Clockwork Nazis with a portal to hell and ancient elven princes with grudges to bear and invincible mechanical soldiers couldn’t stop Hellboy. What made Hollywood think it had a chance of stopping the third film in his movie franchise from coming to life? Actor Ron Perlman, who portrays the jolly red giant, posted a photo to Instagram this weekend that gave a definite impression that Hellboy III was slowly coming together.

Perlman and director Guillermo del Toro have been working for years to get Hellboy III off the ground. In spite of critical and commercial success with the Hellboy II: The Golden Army, del Toro stated quite flatly in an interview last year that funding the movie would prove to be problematic, especially given the poor domestic returns at the box office for his masterpiece Pacific Rim.

Here’s what Ron Perlman posted on Instagram last night: (more…)

Hellboy and the BPRD

Are we ever going to see a third Hellboy movie? Ron Perlman is in, Guillermo del Toro is in, …but what about Mike Mignola? It seems it will be a cold day in hell before we see a third installment (…wait, isn’t Hellboy residing in the deep south at the moment?!), but never say never. With the new release of  comic book series Hellboy and the B.P.R.D. (out today), creator Mike Mignola is doing the rounds promoting Hellboy’s latest adventures (or should’t that be earlier adventures…) and rest assured, you will not be disappointed with the antihero’s origin story, which essentially covers the unexplored 50 years from his first missions with the B.P.R.D. up until the start of the original comic.

Hellboy II: The Golden Army came out in 2008, and six years later it’s still not even a 50 per cent certainty that we may ever see a Hellboy 3. Six years between sequels isn’t a big number, there have been literally decades between entries in other movie series, but with two movies that had lukewarm receptions at the box office, and a never ending pile of projects on director Guillermo del Toro‘s plate, it seems increasingly unlikely that Hellboy 3 is going to become a reality. So is all hope lost? Maybe not, because while Hellboy star Ron Perlman remains the biggest cheerleader for more HB, other actors from the cast are letting it be known that they’re ready, willing an able. (more…)

Oh, Hellboy 3 – it’s been in our hearts and on our minds for the last five years. Unfortunately, the studio hasn’t been that keen on the idea and Guillermo del Toro is busy making buttloads of cash, so it doesn’t look likely to happen anytime soon. Still, actor Ron Perlman isn’t giving in just yet. When talking with ComicBookMovie, the former Hellboy himself had a few words to share regarding the possibility of the project and whether he would like to be involved. Scroll on for more. (more…)

At this point, Hellboy 3 has been nothing but smoke. Director Guillermo del Toro is interested, stars Ron Perlman and Doug Jones are interested; but without an interested studio ready to take on the significant financial backing – Del Toro estimated the film would cost something like $140 million! – Hellboy 3 simply ain’t gonna happen. Enter Legendary Pictures.

Recently split from Warner Bros., the company is keen too keep a healthy relationship with Del Toro, who only just finished up Pacific Rim for Legendary. While promoting Pacific Rim on a press tour, Del Toro had dinner with Ron Perlman and Thomas Tull of Legendary Pictures. And as Del Toro revealed to Ryan Turek of Shock Till You Drop, the possibility of Hellboy 3 was discussed,

I hate giving pieces about it, but last night, we were at dinner and Ron said, ‘I would be very happy to do Hellboy again, when are we doing Hellboy 3?’  Thomas [Tull] said, ‘I would love to see Hellboy 3.’  He didn’t say he would love to do it he just said he’d like to see it, but today, I’ll ask him.

Someone’s clearly testing the waters. Perlman later added when he spoke with Shock this morning,

Not just anybody can make this movie. I loved working for Legendary and I know for Guillermo working on Pacific Rim was one of his greatest experiences.  The reason I loved working for them is because Guillermo was so happy.  I came in six months into the shoot and he seemed as fresh as a daisy, simply because he was working for someone who appreciated and supported his outlandish visions of what he wanted to put on the screen.  My immediate, silent wish was, wouldn’t it be great if these guys came in and helped resolve the Hellboy series.

Hmm. Is Legenday Pictures fishing for another summer tentpole film with Hellboy 3? They’re obviously pleased with Del Toro’s Pacific Rim, and if that flick scores as big at the box office as expected, Tull, Del Toro, and Perlman may be having more dinner meetings to discuss the future of the big, red guy.

Would you love for the Hellboy film franchise to get the trilogy treatment? Could be the beginning of Hellboy 3?

After Hellboy II: The Golden Army, Ron Perlman swore off the character because of the elaborate and soul crushing time and effort required during the elaborate makeup process. It took an act of charity for Perlman to even consider sitting down in that makeup chair again. His big heart led him to help fulfill a sick child’s wish.

The old saying that “Time heals all wounds” must be true, because Perlman has reconsidered his decision about Hellboy III:

“[Del Toro and I] 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. [Guillermo] has a very well-articulated idea of what the resolve would look like and it’s amazingly theatrical and is epic in scope and would make for amazing cinema, with or without the first two movies … I said [to Guillermo], ‘You owe it to the world to finish this trilogy. I’ve been giving him Jewish guilt.”

Would Guillermo Del Toro be interested once he learns that the other indispensable man needed to continue the Hellboy trilogy was ready to get back in the saddle? Both Del Toro and Hellboy creator Mike Mignola have stated that unless the project can come up with the required $140 million dollar budget that there’s little hope of completing the trilogy.
