Hellboy

Any time director Guillermo del Toro has been asked if he’s planning on making a third installment in his Hellboy franchise over the last few years, his responses have not been encouraging. His general feeling is that there are just too many new and exciting things to do out there to go back to the Hellboy well for a third time. Seeing as Hellboy 2 has earned a lot of fans over the years, and there’s a great big, world-ending prophecy storyline that could be tackled in Hellboy 3, a lot of people have taken these comments as being a huge disappointment. But news coming out of Comic-Con sees del Toro’s tune changed quite a bit in regards to another go-around with the red-skinned one. Entertainment Weekly got the director and Ron Perlman together to talk about their latest project, Pacific Rim, and he dropped this bomb on them, “I can say publicly that now we are together in trying (to do Hellboy 3).” This was something of a shocking statement, that Perlman fleshed out by adding, “The [first] two movies were really set up to have this unbelievable resolve. Everything that was done in both movies was leading up to this destiny, written in stone, of what Hellboy has been summoned to Earth to do. To not do it, particularly in light of the scope that Guillermo is thinking of for the resolve, would be in my mind a little bit of a shame.”

Ron Perlman has been a force in television and film for three decades. He’s no stranger to fans, especially those he won as Hellboy and as Clay Morrow on Sons of Anarchy, and he’s appeared in a handful of movies every year since 1993 (with 1996 and 1999 being the only years he appeared in only one). You know him. You love him. Now, we’re ready to pronounce 2011 The Year of The Perlman because while he’s worked steadily in movies small and big alike for a long time, this was the year that he really ate his spinach and showed his face in an almost absurd amount of flicks. What’s more, his performances spanned the quality spectrum enough to earn him the Shyamalan Award For Bizarrely Up and Down Work. It’s important to note that his acting was rock steady throughout, but even with (and with the addition of his talents), he was in some terrible (and some amazing) movies. From prestige films, to independent action, to summer epics, to that one thing with Nic Cage, Ron Perlman was everywhere doing everything.

I can’t say that I had any fondness for the original Hellboy film that director Guillermo del Toro made, but I thought he picked things up quite a bit for Hellboy II: The Golden Army. It came off a lot less as a studio driven project and showed more of the imagination and scope of something like del Toro’s masterpiece Pan’s Labyrinth. It was enough to make me a fan of the series, and ever since, like a lot of people I’m sure, I’ve been waiting for word about del Toro doing a third. But, we film fans have grown accustomed to waiting for things when it comes to del Toro’s next project. Originally he was scheduled to be the director of The Hobbit, but then scheduling issues took him off of that film. Then we all got excited about him doing monster movie At the Mountains of Madness, but Universal decided they didn’t want to fund the project. Instead, they wanted him to do Pacific Rim, another monster movie about a creature coming out of the Pacific Ocean. But even that project got thrown into question once the horrific earthquakes took place in Japan. It’s beginning to feel like Guillermo del Toro might never direct another film. And now, just in case we were wondering, there’s confirmation of another project that the director will definitely not be doing. Hellboy creator Mike Mignola had some more than discouraging words to say about a possible Hellboy 3 when talking on a […]
