Ron Perlman attempts to find Hellboy 3 a new home at Legendary Pictures

Jul. 1, 2013by: Niki Stephens

Who wants HELLBOY 3 more than Ron Perlman? Despite the outlook of adding a third film to round out the trilogy, Perlman continues to keep hope alive.

During an interview with Shocktilyoudrop.com, Guillermo del Toro revealed that during a break from doing press for PACIFIC RIM that himself, Perlman, and Legendary Pictures head Thomas Tull had a nice talk over dinner. In that time, Perlman brought up doing HELLBOY 3:

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.

Yesterday the site caught up with Perlman to follow up with the development. The actor agreed that Legendary would be a good fit:

"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."

Legendary head Tull did have much to say on the conversation but did say that there are rights issues that would need to be sorted out for Legendary to get involved.

This movie definitely needs to happen with as many of the original cast as possible. Golden Army hinted at an epic conclusion and it would be great to see that.

what about Del Toro? Is he interested in even doing it? I loved the first two, and think their Perlman's best work. I'd love to see a three!

Something so eerily perfect about the Hellboy franchise. I just love both Hellboy movies so much and so does my 12 year old daughter...we saw the last one in the theaters and we both just loved it so much. I can't wait I can't wait I can't wait...I just hope this happens. If anyone can do it right and get er dun its Legendary Pictures....they seem to be behind all the best movies lately!!
Now Everytime I see the Legendary Pictures name and logo it immediately reminds me that I'm going to be

Now Everytime I see the Legendary Pictures name and logo it immediately reminds me that I'm going to be seeing a fantastic fantasy/sci-fi/comic book movie or any of the three combination. Or I correlate the logo with The Dark Knight and now Man of Steel...which both are just fantastic incredible movies and correlations to make....I just hope they get to make this movie and let our imaginations into the Hellboy world one more time.

Let's be honest does Del Toro really need to be the director in order for Hellboy 3 to happen? I just don't get the hype fanboys have for him.

More please but....

I absolutely want to see the ending of this trilogy but it must have Del Toro behind the camera! We will see what happens with Pacific Rim(I am hoping it does better than predicted) but if that movie does well I feel like GDT wants to jump right into that sequel. The only movie that should trump Hellboy 3 is if GDT could somehow get At the Mountains of Madness off the ground. Just a thought; if GDT can't do Hellboy 3 what about seeing Peter Jackson take over? It would be cool to see him do

It would be cool to see him do something where he could use his imagination and give us something more in the horror genre like Dead Alive! But really this needs to be a Del Toro/Perlman collaboration!

I'd love to see Hellboy 3! Hellboy2 is one of the best comic-book adapted films ever made (In my own opinion, of course) so a sequel is more than welcomed!

Good luck Red, we're all pulling for ya. When people talk about how perfect an actor was for a superhero role, like with Hugh Jackman and Wolverine and Robert Downey, Jr. and Iron Man, I think Ron Perlman as Hellboy definitely deserves a mention.

YES, PLEASE!

Hellboy deserves a third film to close the trilogy, I just hope that Guillermo del Toro finds the time to direct it.
