Ron Perlman revealed in an interview last year that he will never stop trying to get Hellboy 3 made, "because the first two films were set up for this huge resolve and he (Guillermo del Toro) already understands what that resolve will look like." The actor wouldn't divulge any details regarding the story of this final installment, and it isn't known if his co-stars Selma Blair and Doug Jones will return for the sequel. Still, the mere mention of Hellboy 3 gets longtime fans excited. When Guillermo del Toro mentioned the title at last year's Comic-Con, the 6,500 fans in Hall H broke into riotous applause.
It isn't known if Guillermo del Toro has actually written a full script for Hellboy 3 yet, but it seems he already has the story well mapped out. The director's next film, Crimson Peak, hits theaters this October, and he starts shooting Pacific Rim 2 sometime this fall. The director recently cleared some space in his schedule by dropping out of Dark Universe, but it isn't known what he will shoot after Pacific Rim 2.

Guillermo del Toro is no longer attached to direct Warner Bros.' highly-anticipated Dark Universe, also known as Justice League Dark. The news follows a report from April, where Guillermo del Toro himself hinted that he may not have time to direct the project, even though the script is already completed. It isn't clear who Warner Bros. may be seeking to replace the director at this time.
The director is currently putting the finishing touches on his haunted house thriller Crimson Peak, which hits theaters this October. And he is prepping to shoot the sequel Pacific Rim 2, which already has an August 4, 2017 release date in place. There have also been rumors that Hellboy 3 may be be in the works, but the director hasn't said anything definitive about this long-rumored sequel thus far. It is believed that he will shoot Pacific Rim 2 next, sometime this fall.Read More
Ryan Gosling is in talks to join Guillermo del Toro's long-gestating project Haunted Mansion 3D. Guillermo del Toro recently moderated a panel at the South By Southwest Film Festival last month for Ryan Gosling's directorial debut Lost River, and they were also spotted at Disneyland over Oscar weekend, riding the Haunted Mansion ride together and others such as Space Mountain, Thunder Mountain Railroad and Pirates of the Caribbean. No details were given for what character Ryan Gosling may portray.
Back in July, the director revealed that he may not direct Haunted Mansion, and that they have not cracked the story quite yet. The Wrap reports that D.V. DeVincentis (High Fidelity, Grosse Pointe Blank) is currently working on the script, although there is no indication about when production may begin. If Ryan Gosling does sign on, it will mark a reunion of sorts with Disney, since he was one of the Mouseketeers in The Mickey Mouse Club, and one of his early movie roles was in Disney's Remember the Titans.Read More
If Justice League Dark is part of the DC Universe, it may be quite some time before we see it on the big screen, since Warner Bros.' current slate of 10 movies goes until 2020, and that doesn't include stand alone Batman and Superman movies that are also in the works. Their schedule doesn't allow for a whole lot of room for another project, so it's possible that this may be held off until after the two-part Justice League movie. It's also possible that the rumored Vertigo Comics movie universe is happening, where Justice League Dark would be a natural fit. What do you think about these new updates? Let us know what you think below.

Legendary Comics announces Pacific Rim Comic Book Series and two other exciting new titles to arrive in the Fall. Guillermo del Toro promised more adventures from the world of Pacific Rim - and he has delivered. Legendary is taking fans back to the frontlines of a larger-than-life battleground with Pacific Rim: Tales from the Drift, the official new comic series presented by director Guillermo del Toro and featuring a story from Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham. A continuation of the bestselling graphic novel Pacific Rim: Tales from Year Zero, the new Pacific Rim comic series will feature Jaegers never before seen in combat, squaring off against all-new Kaiju creatures.
Legendary is also launching two original titles. First is the riveting espionage thriller Black Bag, starring Legendary Comics' first female action hero. This gripping series about a suburban wife-turned-covert government assassin comes from writer Chris Roberson, creator of the breakout comic iZombie (recently adapted into a network TV series), and features art from fast-rising talent JB Bastos, known for his standout work on Night Trap.Read More
Guillermo del Toro is teaming up with his Pacific Rim screenwriter Travis Beacham for a new Amazon Studios TV series entitled A Killing on Carnival Row. Travis Beacham originally wrote the spec script as a feature, which was picked up by New Line Cinema back in 2005, with Guillermo del Toro attached to direct. The filmmaker eventually moved on to other projects, with Neil Jordan set to direct at one point before the project dissolved when New Line fully merged with Warner Bros. Tarsem Singh became attached back in 2011, but the project could not find a studio home. After developing the project as a feature for several years, Legendary's Thomas Tull approached Guillermo del Toro about turning it into a TV series, after the filmmaker's success with FX's The Strain.
Guillermo del Toro is currently in production on Season 2 of The Strain, and in post-production on his latest feature, Legendary's Crimson Peak, which hits theaters on October 16. The filmmaker has a number of other projects in various stages of development, including Dark Universe, At the Mountains of Madness and Haunted Mansion 3D.Read More
