The “will they or won’t they” question about the creation of a third Hellboy movie is one that continues to come up as writer/director Guillermo del Toro moves through Crimson Peak and into a second Pacific Rim movie. The director hasn’t said anything else that inspires great optimism, and star Ron Perlman now seems to have little personal desire to make the movie.
Or, as Perlman said in a recent interview, “I don’t want to do Hellboy 3. It’s a pain in the ass to put that makeup on and take it off. But I feel we’re obligated to finish the story.” And now thanks to a new interview, we know something about del Toro’s Hellboy 3 story idea that juices up the actor enough that he might just do it, if someone was willing to pay.

For a couple years Guillermo del Toro has been developing Justice League Dark, a team film that would incorporate characters like John Constantine and Swamp Thing. At first we assumed that project would also move to New Line.
But Justice League Dark is staying at Warner Bros., the better to keep characters who are primarily DC heroes in house. Thing is, Guillermo del Toro is no longer developing it. Read More »
For years, Guillermo del Toro and Ron Perlman have been trying to get Hellboy 3 off the ground. But the hope fans had to see the sequel actually happen was delivered a crushing blow almost a year ago when del Toro said:
“I don’t think it will happen. Creatively, I would love to make it. Creatively. But it is proven almost impossible to finance. Not from my side, but from the studio side. If I was a multimillionaire, I would finance it myself, but I spend all my money on rubber monsters.”
