Ron Perlman and Guillermo Del Toro Don't Talk about HELLBOY 3 Anymore So I Guess It's Done
Ron Perlman really put a lot of effort into pushing Hellboy 3 forward, and at certain points over the years it looked like there was hope. Well, It sounds like any hope for a third Hellboy movie is gone.
The actor recent sat down with a group of reporters at NYCC this weekend, and when they asked if he would reteam with director Guillermo del Toro on a third Hellboy, he said:
“We don’t talk about that anymore.”
That's kind of sad to hear, but we all knew there was a chance it would never happen. If they stopped talking about it, that tells me they've given up. When asked why they don't talk about it anymore, Perlman said:
“Because he’s busy, and I’m busy. Maybe one day he’s going to call and say, ‘Hey, let’s do it.’ But for right now? We’re happy discovering new worlds to conquer.”
I hate to say it, but at this point, I just don't see Del Toro ever making that call. The actor went on to say that as of right now he and Del Toro aren't working on any other projects together outside of the animated Netflix series Trollhunters.
I'd be completely surprised if Hellboy 3 happened at this point. It's a bummer to hear that it's not on anyone's minds other than the fans'.
