Hellboy 3 is a no go

February 22nd, 2017 by bash Comments

Fans hoping a third Hellboy film are going to be disappointed…. it ain’t happening.

In a tweet from Guillermo del Toro on Tuesday, the director revealed he’d chatted to a number of those involved in the previous two productions (Ron Perlman and Mike Mingola we presume) and from the result of those discussions he wouldn’t be moving forward on a new movie.

The meeting was convened after del Toro asked fans to vote on Twitter on whether they’d want a third film. And with no answer to why a new Hellboy won’t be happening, it looks like fans of the franchise will have to stick with the comics from now on.

Up next for del Toro is the smaller budgeted The Shape of Water, which he wrote and directed. The film stars Doug Jones and Michael Shannon.

The movie is due for release later this year.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
