Ron Perlman Will Never Stop Fighting to Get ‘Hellboy 3’ Made

Following the modest success of 2004's Hellboy ($99 million worldwide from a $66 million budget) and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army ($165 million worldwide from an $85 million budget), fans have been wondering if Hellboy 3 will ever happen. Whether or not the sequel ever sees the light of day, franchise star Ron Perlman revealed in a recent interview that he will always fight to make one final sequel, and that writer-director Guillermo del Toro already has ideas for the third movie.

"I'd like to finish it. I'd like for there to be a third film 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. He never gave me the nuts and bolts of it, but he gave me a rather broad strokes sketch of what the third film would look like and it's so epic and so deserved by the fans that hung in there for the first two that I really feel as though it's essential that we make it. So I fight for it every day. Sometimes I'm the only voice and sometimes there are others, but I'm never going to stop trying to get Hellboy 3 made!"

We first heard about Hellboy 3 at Comic-Con 2012, when both Ron Perlman and Guillermo del Toro admitted publicly that they are trying to get the third movie made. Ron Perlman also revealed in April 2013 that he has been trying to use "Jewish guilt" on Guillermo del Toro to make the movie happen, but as of now, nothing has materialized.

It isn't known if Guillermo del Toro has written a full script for Hellboy 3, but the filmmaker has an ever-growing slate of projects. Aside from his FX TV series The Strain, which debuts July 13, the filmmaker is in post-production on Crimson Peak (October 16, 2015), and he is also working on the Pacific Rim 2 screenplay with Zak Penn.

He is also developing Dark Universe for Warner Bros. and a Frankenstein project, just to name a few. His plate is so full that, last week, he backed out of Warner Bros.' live-action revisionist take on Beauty and the Beast, starring Emma Watson.

                        I wonder why thats not considered a success!? The movie made ALL of it's money back and a good profit the movie paid for itself and paid people. That sounds like a success to me

                                @thedude1 "Following the modest success of 2004's Hellboy ($99 million worldwide from a $66 million budget) and 2008's Hellboy II: The Golden Army ($165 million worldwide from an $85 million budget)" SEE BRO. EVEN MOVIEWEB SAID IT. A MOVIE DOESN'T HAVE TO DOUBLE ITS BUDGET TO BE CONSIDERED A SUCCESS.

                                66x2=132. Hellboy made 99. Still considered a success despite not doubling on its budget.

                                85x2=170. Hellboy 2 made 165 million. But...ITS STILL CONSIDERED A SUCCESS. Say it ain't so?

                                as for a hellboy 3, im down for it.
