It's no secret that Ron Perlman passionately wants a "Hellboy 3" to be made. At various press conferences for the last couple of years, it seems like he brings it up every chance he gets. While undeniably in great shape, the man is already in his 60's, so time is certainly of the essence.
"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."
Naturally not missing another opportunity to plug his desire to be a part of a third film, Perlman said the following:
"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."
Perlman is in, del Toro seems interested, can they get Legendary Pictures on board as well? I think we'll know a lot more about the fate of the potential project after "Pacific Rim" opens. Sadly it's not tracking well at the moment, but hopefully the del Toro and sci-fi fans out there will go see it and give our beloved "Hellboy 3" a proper shot.
