Hellboy 3 is a distant possibility. Problem is there’s a multitude of reasons why it probably won’t happen.
For one, Ron Perlman has stated publicly that getting made up in the Hellboy outfit for many hours each day was a toiling process and he doesn’t want to go through it again.
Another reason: the last movie, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, didn’t do tremendously well at the box office.
And it seems director Guillermo del Toro is trying to find his footing again in Hollywood after two drawn-out, very public divorces from big-time studio projects; i.e. The Hobbit and At the Mountains of Madness.
Selma Blair talked to Bloody-Disgusting about completing the Hellboy trilogy, and out of everyone involved in the first two movies, she’s the most excited about doing another one.
“It’s my dream to work with Guillermo del Toro again. I just want to be near him. I love him. I miss him. It’s my dream that one day when I’m done with the TV Show [Anger Management] they say, ‘ok the movie’s actually going to go!’ That would be the biggest heaven.”
On Hellboy II‘s cliffhanger ending and where the story might go from there:
“I mean it’s all set up. ‘Hellboy 3′ is the biggest payoff and the biggest horror. I want to see what these twins are up to, if one’s the devil and one’s an angel. I want to see what Hellboy and Liz are up to! I know the film is the apocalypse and the apocalypse isn’t cheap to shoot so we have to find some funding and get going with it!”
