Speaking to IGN recently Hellboy and Sons of Anarchy star Ron Perlman voiced his desire to play the big red guy one last time.
“[Del Toro and I] both walked away from Hellboy 2 agreeing that there would never be another one. But, with the passage of time, it became clear to me that he really always designed it as a trilogy. [Guillermo] has a very well-articulated idea of what the resolve would look like and it’s amazingly theatrical and is epic in scope and would make for amazing cinema, with or without the first two movies.”
The 63 year old actor added “I said [to Guillermo], ‘You owe it to the world to finish this trilogy’ – I’ve been giving him Jewish guilt.”
Guillermo del Toro has his plate full at the moment working on Dark Universe, horror movie Crimson Peak with Jessica Chastain, Emma Stone and Benedict Cumberbatch and he’s also developing a manga inspired TV series with HBO called Monster. Hellboy 3 has been the subject of speculation for a good long while now, some would say they’ve left it too late to round off the trilogy but we live in hope that Hellboy gets the finale he deserves.
Ron Pearlman features in Guillermo del Toro’s summer blockbuster Pacific Rim which is out in cinemas July 12.
